Future guests include:

Monday, May 11th: Stephen Burks will speak about his globe-spanning and pluralistic design practice, which often involves intensive collaboration with traditional artisans. Burks will also preview a new collaboration with the Crafts Program at Berea College, which reflects the ethnic diversity of Appalachia.

Wednesday, May 13th: Jeanne Greenberg, founder and owner of the gallery Salon94, will share stories and insights about her progressive approach—which moves with unique fluidity across the disciplines of art and design—and the challenges and opportunities of the present moment.

Friday, May 15th: Darrin Alfred (Denver Art Museum), Monica Obniski (High Museum of Art), and Bobbye Tigerman (LACMA) will join us for a conversation about curatorial collaboration, focusing on the exhibitions Serious Play: Design in Midcentury America and Scandinavian Design and the United States, 1890-1980.

More guests to come as we are currently building a program that will hopefully be as engaging to the audience as it is exciting for us. Post quarantine the gallery will continue the Design in Dialogue platform. We will post updates for this series on Instagram @friedman_benda. Join us and help keep the design conversation going.
