Installing California Design

September 12, 2011

If you've been inside the Resnick Pavilion recently, you have seen the major installation work happening for our upcoming exhibition California Design, 1930-1965: "Living in a Modern Way", opening October 1. This multimedia exhibition includes furniture, ceramics, metalwork, fashion and textiles, industrial and graphic design, cars, and more. Building the structural framework to support all of these objects has been an intense process for our exhibition designers.
