As American architect Robert Venturi put it, “Less is a bore!” Come and have your senses assaulted by the raw energy, stark images, bold colors, outrageous patterns, and loud music of postmodern design spanning 1960s pop, 1970s punk, and early 1980s new wave. Works on display include furniture and other designs for the home, graphic design, and music videos.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with collections and special exhibitions.

Groups meet in the galleries noted on the schedule. Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
