MCD Curator Walk-Through: The Object in Its Place with Carol Covington

April 7 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

$8 – $10

The Museum of Craft and Design presents a Curator Walk-Through celebrating the extraordinary career of Exhibition Designer Theodore (“Ted”) Cohen. The Object In Its Place: As Designed by Ted Cohen brings art to life, celebrating the “fabulous” career of Ted Cohen’s extensive years as an exhibition designer, featuring art objects he has designed in many museums and residences throughout his illustrious career.

Because Ted has brought his design eye to so many artworks in so many spaces throughout so many years, it is understandably hard to choose which objects to feature in a single place. Join guest curator Carol Covington, in conversation with MCD Curator Ariel Zaccheo, as viewers are led through the process of curating this special retrospective of works from some of his favorite places, artists, and collectors– granting an inspiring glimpse into the aesthetic “worlds” he created.

The exhibition, also designed by Ted Cohen, features works in wood, glass, fiber, and ceramics by celebrated artists, such as Mildred Howard, Peter Voulkos, Robert Brady, Marilyn Levine, Mary White, Clifford Rainey, and Therman Statom. When Theodore Cohen puts The Object in Its Place, it is an exceptional and extraordinary result. He brings the object to life and makes each piece glow in its place!

Pre-registration required—limited space available.
