Caroline Cole, Ellyn McColgan Assistant Curator of Decorative Arts and Sculpture
Taylor Poulin, curatorial research associate, Art of the Americas
Inspired by the set design of the television series Mad Men, we’ll explore themes in midcentury American furniture, art, and design. Dress in your 1950’s chic, and enjoy a cocktail and small bites as we watch clips from the show and discuss them in context with the MFA’s collection of midcentury design.
This event is 21+ with valid state-issued idenfication.
