June 13 Pull Up a Chair!
6-8 pm

Visit Joslyn's community gallery (Memorial Building, lower level) to see design documents and production-grade prototypes of chairs created by University of Nebraska-Lincoln (UNL) Architecture and Interior Design students. The students were all enrolled in a product design course inspired by the exhibition The Art of Seating: 200 Years of American Design.

Stop by to meet UNL student designers and try out their chairs! Enjoy light refreshments, give selected chairs a sit, and engage in conversation with the designers to learn about their inspiration and some of the trials and triumphs that accompanied the design process.

Also see Tiny Treasures, a display of a dozen handcrafted fine-scale miniature chairs - from ones fashioned after Windsor and Shaker styles to others representing designs by Harry Bertoia and Charles and Ray Eames - all selected from UNL's Kruger Collection of Miniature Furnishings and Decorative Arts.

Those wishing to view The Art of Seating exhibition this evening must obtain a ticket (exhibition tickets are discounted to $5 for general public adults on Thursdays, 4-8 pm).
