The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design (Exhibit)
Time: 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: Reynolda House
As objects frequently used, abused, and replaced, chairs often best reflect the changing fashions in furniture and decorating styles. This exhibition from a single private collection presents seating furniture from the 19th, 20th, and early 21st centuries. The 43 chairs in The Art of Seating reveal stylistic, philosophical, and technological changes over 200 years of American design. Made from a variety of materials, using a range of processes, these chairs demonstrate the complexity and inventiveness of design within the cultural and historical context of each creation.Including iconic chairs from well-known 20th-century designers and architects such as Frank Gehry, Robert Venturi, Eero Saarinen, Charles and Ray Eames, and Isamu Noguchi, along with 19th-century designers John Henry Belter and the Herter Brothers firm, The Art of Seating tells the dynamic and engaging story of furniture design and production in the United States.
The Yup'ik Way of Life: An Alaskan People in Transition (Exhibit)
Time: 10:00 AM to 4:30 PM
Location: Museum of Anthropology, Wake Forest University
This student-curated exhibit features photographs of Alaska’s Yup’ik people, their environment, and resources by Greensboro native John Rucker. Taken between 1979 and 1987, the photographs document a lifestyle that has largely disappeared with the arrival of modern influences such as telephones, fast food, and television in the intervening years. The images are integrated with objects made by Yup’ik artisans and collected by early Moravian missionaries with connections to Winston-Salem. The objects provide a link to the past and further document the cultural transitions of the Yup’ik since European contact. Admission is free.
