Join Boscobel and Manitoga for Americana and Industrial Design: Lurelle Guild, The Streamlined Antiquarian - a lively talk by John Stuart Gordon of Yale University Art Gallery. At mid-century, Russel Wright and Lurelle Guild looked to America's past to forge a vision for its design future. 
 
Guild—who famously redesigned the Electrolux vacuum cleaner— was also an author, amateur architect, and a collector of American antiques. Guild’s diverse interests informed the objects he created for leading companies, some of which have become icons of Depression-era design. Guild also built and decorated a series of idiosyncratic Connecticut homes that celebrate his interest in early Americana.
 
This design talk will be followed by a Q&A and reception.
