When we think of a work of art, our brains tend to go towards paintings and sculptures. Now look down on what you are sitting on. Would you call it a work of art? Someone had to be creative and think up the design of your chair.
This Thursday, September 16th, the Minneapolis Institute of Art is curating Chairevolution! 300 Years of Designing the Chair. The exhibit examines the history of chair design using examples from the museum’s permanent collection of chairs. By displaying the development of chairs over time, the exhibit showcases the chair’s evolution of function and aesthetics.
