Seeing 40/40:

Forty Years of Collecting at GMD

September 10, 2016 - January 8, 2017


Happy 40th anniversary GMD! Long before the Goldstein Museum of Design’s formation in 1976, professors Harriet and Vetta Goldstein were amassing a personal design collection that was used in object-based teaching. The collection has grown considerably since this time, with more than 34,000 objects from over 1,000 generous donors. This exhibition features 40 objects selected by a wide range of design thought leaders. Seeing 40/40 will offer a peek into the integrity and beauty of GMD’s collection.

Organized by the Goldstein Museum of Design
