The Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture is presenting American Streamlined Design: The World of Tomorrow, a selection of 180 objects including furniture, ceramics, metalwork, plastic, and graphic design, as well as original drawings and book designs. It is the most comprehensive exhibition ever mounted on the subject. Although it focuses on the 1930s and ?40s, the period during which streamlined design developed in the United States, the exhibition also presents streamlining in design today. The curators of the exhibition are David A. Hanks, Curator, Stewart Program for Modern Design, and Dr. Martin Eidelberg, former Professor of Art History, Rutgers University.

Tuesday through Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Thursday from 11:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Admission is $3 general, $2 seniors and students (with valid ID), and free on Thursday evenings after 5:00 p.m.
