Art Historian Kristina Wilson: August 14, 7:30 p.m.

Join us in the barn as art historian Kristina Wilson considers how the Herman Miller Furniture Company incorporated ‘exotic’ tourist art from faraway lands in its advertising to give its products—including storage pieces, tables, and chairs—a global, cosmopolitan air. A lifelong Gilmanton summer resident, Wilson is a professor at Clark University, in Worcester, and the author of Livable Modernism: Interior Decorating and Design During the Great Depression, published by Yale University Press. She is now at work on a new book about the 1950s.
