Paul McCobb is the greatest American designer you didn’t know you knew. McCobb designed functional and versatile items for the postwar American consumer in the Mid-Century Modern (MCM) era. He sought to improve the way Americans lived through mass produced yet high-quality pieces that were available in department stores as well as high-end galleries.
This groundbreaking temporary exhibit will feature dozens of items from a private collection. Whether you grew up with McCobb’s products, are a recent MCM aficionado, or just love exploring good design, you will not want to miss this exhibit!
