SFDC Member Discount: Reform and the Roots of Modernism





Date and Time: Tuesday, March 12 @ 8:00 PM
Lecture Location:  Koret Auditorium, de Young Museum
Cost: $15 to the general public, $10 to SFDC members (present your badge at the door)

Tomorrow’s illustrated presentation is by Julie Nicoletta, Professor in the Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences Program at the University of Washington Tacoma. The United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing, popularly known as the Shakers, left behind a rich legacy of buildings which expresses the group’s religious and social beliefs in worship through physical labor, the possibility of moral perfection and near equality between the sexes.  Dr. Nicoletta examines the legacy of Shaker architecture in regard to 20th century modernism, particularly in the decorative arts.  The Shakers’ interest in economy and efficiency, apparent in the absence of ornament, use of built-in furniture and the love of natural materials, particularly wood, influenced later generations of designers. Most importantly, the goal of some 20th century modernists to reform society through good design, reflects the Shakers’ earlier belief that architecture could forge a path toward perfection.

7:15 PM mini-exhibit: ADAF members will bring baskets and boxes, Shaker or worldly, of all shapes, sizes and functions.

8:00 PM lecture: Koret Auditorium, de Young Museum, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. Enter from Level B1 of the parking garage; pedestrians enter from the concourse side of Hagiwara Tea Garden Drive and down the steps across the street from the museum’s main entrance.
