Greta Grossman Exhibition Opens Tonight
Recently discovered drawings by the Swedish-born, Los Angeles-based designer go on display in New York.
Recently discovered drawings by the Swedish-born, Los Angeles–based architect and industrial designer Greta Magnusson Grossman will go on display tonight at the Drawing Center, in New York.
Grossman, who died in 1999, was an important figure in the Southern California design movement of the 1950s and ’60s. A two-time recipient of the Museum of Modern Art’s Good Design award, she was a fixture in Arts & Architecture magazine and an influence on such better-known contemporaries as Charles and Ray Eames, Richard Neutra, and John Lautner.

Greta Magnusson Grossman: Furniture and Lighting will be on view at the Drawing Center from October 17 to November 6. The opening reception is tonight from 6 to 8 p.m.
