The Whimiscal World of Bjørn Wiinblad

Exhibition Opening

10am

Bjørn Wiinblad (1918–2006) was a unique and visionary artist who embraced it all—every medium and every color, from the handmade to the mass-produced. This exhibit surveys his work with ceramics, theatrical costumes, posters, tapestry, and more. Wiinblad injected fantasy and an almost cartoon-ish flair that created a perfect accent to all of the clean-lined furniture and modernist spaces of the time.

Original exhibition developed by Arken Museum of Modern Art (Ishøj, Denmark). American tour organized by the Museum of Danish America (Elk Horn, Iowa) and curated by Tova Brandt.

‚ÄčExhibition runs from July 28 to November 05, 2017.
