“Is there art in a broomstick?” Join the conversation as we contemplate this question and look at examples of art in the everyday, from household goods, furniture, and electronics to high design. How do form, function, and cost factor into “good design?” We will also talk about the impact design had on the social, political, and economic landscape of postwar America and beyond.

This session is led by Maya Jeffereis.

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

Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.
