Paul McCobb exhibition logoPaul McCobb,
America's Designer

May 22 - January 7, 2022
Entry included with Museum admission.

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!
