Russel Wright: The Nature of Design

October 19, 2012

Currently on view at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art in New Paltz, the exhibition “Russel Wright: The Nature of Design” explores the work and philosophy of renowned industrial designer Russel Wright, whose former home in the Hudson Valley—Manitoga—is now a national historic landmark. The exhibition focuses on one of Wright's most pervasive preoccupations, which also has much relevance today: the relationship of humankind with the natural world. While examining Wright's entire career from the 1920s through the 1970s, this exhibition will focus on his work between 1945 and 1968, when Wright increasingly designed in experimental and innovative ways. This exhibition is curated by Donald Albrecht and Dianne Pierce.
