Lecture at Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum On 19th Century Decorative Arts

Event Date/Time

Jul 10, 2013
11:00 am until 2:00 pm

Description

Lecture at Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum On 19th Century Decorative Arts

The decorative arts in the age of discovery will be examined at a lecture entitled  "Technology and Invention in 19th-century Decorative Arts" to be held at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum on Wednesday, July 10 beginning at 11:00am.  
Innovations in manufacturing and transportation in the 19th century made the production and distribution of consumer goods cheaper, allowing consumers in the U.S. and Europe to buy decorative items at affordable prices. In the lecture, Ethan Robey an expert in the History of Decorative Arts and Design will explore some of the many technical innovations in the manufacturing of decorative arts objects, as well as the depiction of industry and technology as decorative motifs in the second half of the 19th century. The lecture will focus on the periodic world's fairs, those great celebrations of progress, where many manufacturers displayed their innovations.
This is the third in a series of lectures at the Mansion on “Technologies and Discoveries of the Victorian Era.”  The lectures are $25 for members, $30 for non-members per session.  The price includes lecture, lunch and choice of a Mansion or exhibit tour.  Lunch is courtesy of Michael Gilmartin's Outdoor Cookers.  The chair of the Lecture Committee is Mimi Findlay of New Canaan.  To reserve a seat, please contact the Mansion by July 3rd at 203-838-9799, ext. 4.
Ethan Robey is Assistant Professor of the History of Decorative Arts and Design at Parsons The New School for Design and the Associate Director of the Master's Program in the History of Decorative Arts and Design, jointly run by Parsons and Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. His scholarship addresses issues of display, consumerism and taste in the nineteenth and twentieth century, including his recent contribution to the exhibition catalogue for Inventing the Modern World: Decorative Arts at the World's Fairs, 1851-1939.
The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum’s 2013 cultural and educational programs are made possible by generous funding from the LMMM Distinguished Benefactors: The Xerox Foundation, Klaff’s, Mrs. Cynthia C. Brown and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.  The Museum’s Education Program is made possible in part by a generous donation from AT&T.
Also on exhibit at the Museum, “What Is It?  Technologies and Discoveries of the Victorian Era” which is open until October 6th.  The “What Is It?” exhibit is made possible in part thanks to a grant from the Connecticut Humanities (CTH), a non-profit affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities that funds, creates and collaborates on hundreds of cultural programs across Connecticut each year.  CTH brings together people of all ages and backgrounds to express, share and explore ideas in thoughtful and productive ways. From local discussion groups to major exhibitions on important historical events, CTH programs engage, enlighten and educate.  Learn more by visiting www.cthumanities.org.
