The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft welcomes this exhibition highlighting the work of Eero Saarinen, the Finnish-born American architect whose work includes such 20th century masterpieces as St. Louis’ Gateway Arch and Dulles Airport.
Curated by architectural historian and architect Mina Marefat, PhD, AIA, the exhibition promotes the rediscovery of Eero Saarinen, his passion for design and the lasting, still very valid principles he promoted throughout his life and career.
Five decades after Saarinen’s death, his message and philosophy of architecture are still fresh and relevant. His buildings, like his principles, have withstood the test of time. Rather than follow the doctrine of constrained modernism, Saarinen pursued a quest for an architecture that was rooted in timeless principles, while at the same time bringing innovation and expanding the boundaries of technology.
The Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft hours—Tuesday-Saturday: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.; Sunday: 11 a.m.-5 p.m.; Monday: closed.
