“American Streamlined Design” open at Philbrook Museum.


Tulsa, OK: Through May 14, this traveling exhibit explores how “sleek aerodynamic styling embodied a new and modern beauty.” The show presents 180 objects by such designers as Henry Dreyfuss and Russel Wright. As reported in Antiques and The Arts Weekly, “objects in diverse new materials, from Bakelite to stainless steel, are organized thematically around the spheres of American life in the 1930s–50s.” If you can’t make it to Oklahoma, there is a book by David A. Hanks and Anne Hoy to accompany this exhibit.
