Designing Home: Jews and Midcentury Modernism is the first exhibition to look at the contribution of Jewish designers, architects, patrons, and merchants in the creation of a distinctly modern American domestic landscape. The story told in this exhibition gives remarkable insight into Jewish assimilation into American society, going beyond a simple exploration of physical contributions to the history of modern architecture and design—an impact that continues today—to examine broader cultural and social themes.
