Mister K & Franz Kafka

On display November 16th – December 22nd, 2012

Curated by Stephen Coles, this exhibition celebrates the metallic emblems that gave names and life to vintage automobiles, domestic appliances, and other consumer objects. Hundreds of photographs (as well as some real, physical examples) take visitors on a nostalgic trip through the trends and eccentricities of this ubiquitous but unsung lettering, from the first electrified homes to the streets of mid-century America.
