In February, The Wall Street Journal published a review of "The Rise of Everyday Design: The Arts and Crafts Movement in Britain and America." The exhibit was co-curated by SDCT's Dr. Monica Penick and School of Architecture professor Christopher Long. You can read The Wall Street Journal article here.
Boasting more than 200 items including books, drawings, furniture, decorative arts objects, photographs, and flyers, broadsides and advertising ephemera, the exhibit offers a new and detailed look at the history of the Arts and Crafts movement. A companion volume, edited by exhibition curators Monica Penick and Christopher Long and published by Yale University Press in association with the Ransom Center, offers a new understanding of the Arts and Crafts idea, its geographical reach, and its translation into everyday taste.
"The Rise of Everyday Design" is on display at the Harry Ransom Center through July 14.
