Chicago Artropolis May 1 Lecture: The Regency Revival from Deco Greco to Hollywood Glam


EEE will discuss the interpretations of neoclassicism during the twentieth century—from the Art Deco designs of Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann to the silver screen set designs of Hollywood. With an exploration of how during the turbulent years between the two World Wars, many people—from socialites to housewives—turned to the high style and comfort of the Regency style instead of the cold tubular steel of Modernism, and how such legendary designers as Dorothy Draper and David Adler were able to find their voice in the Classical tradition to create spaces that were as modern as they were timeless

When: May 1st, 1:00pm

How do you ever go to sleep with all of these amazing images/facts/timelines/relationships swirling in your brain? I bet a CAT-scan of your brain would be the most beautiful room in the world. I'm impressed with what you know and how you present that information. Good luck with your lecture.
