Modernism Museum Mount Dora explores the work of artists who found new expressive possibilities in the field of functional objects.
The Modernism Museum follows these progressive figures, beginning with Wharton Esherick, the “Dean of American Craftsmen,” whose work has inspired several generations of designers and makers. Of particular prominence within the collection are the American artists George Nakashima and Wendell Castle.
A collection of the work of Ettore Sottsass and the radical group Memphis, which was based in Milan, Italy, includes objects from the estate of David Bowie.
Art, craft, and design to ignite the imagination, stimulate thought and provide enjoyment.
