Mid-Century Modern scene in Boston?

Postby Retrovixen » Wed Jan 04, 2006 2:20 pm

Hi Lotta Livin' Friends,

I just discovered this website today and I'm so glad that I did. I love Mid-Century Modern furniture and fashions, and until now was unaware of an online community such as this through which to learn about events, online stores, etc.

I moved to the Boston area two years ago, and I would like to know if there are any clubs or associations of mid-century modern enthusiasts in Boston? Also, are there any classes about MCM decorative arts that anyone knows about? I am interested in just continuing education or seminars, not degrees.

If anyone has any information on MCM activities in and around Boston or the North Shore of MA, I would be very grateful for any info.

Thanks in advance.

Lyn

Try this:

DOCOMOMO US/New England

The Boston Chapter brings together members of the professional design, architecture, preservation, and real estate development communities; academics; and interested lay persons committed to bringing the extremely broad knowledge base of its diverse membership to bear on our understanding and appreciation of both the canonical and "hidden" works of the modern movement. They cooperate to publicize, register, and, when needed, advocate for the rich legacy of the modern movement in a region that contains works by famed pioneers (Aalto, Gropius, Le Corbusier, Wright and others) and postwar architectural and landscape designers such as Louis Kahn, Dan Kiley, I.M Pei and Paul Rudolph, as well as by a growing list of previously unrecognized practitioners of interwar "invisible modernism". It works closely with museums, universities, architecture schools, local preservation organizations, regulatory agencies and historical commissions on education and advocacy; serves as a primary information source for owners of modernist properties; and organizes public lectures and tours for both specialists and nonspecialist audiences. Massachusetts-based since its foundation in 1997, it is eager to collaborate with interested individuals, agencies and institutions throughout the entire region.

I'd definitely be interested in learning more about them.
