The exhibition explores the work and philosophy of renowned industrial designer Russel Wright, whose former home in the Hudson Valley-Manitoga-is now a national historic landmark. The exhibition focuses on the relationship of humankind with the natural world. While examining Wright's entire career from the 1920s through the 1970s, this exhibition will highlight his work between 1945 and 1968, when Wright increasingly designed in experimental and innovative ways.
