Wright was a mid-century industrial designer and dinnerware pioneer who helped bring Modernism to America’s kitchens and dining rooms. He and his wife, Mary, wrote “The Guide to Easier Living” in 1950, which outlined their ideas on how to keep your living space in comfortable order. The show runs through October, so if you find yourself with time to spare in Terminal 3, take a look at all the fantastic pieces in the collection.
It’s also absolutely worthwhile to keep your eye out for upcoming exhibitions at SFO, whose dedicated San Francisco Airport Museums—the first in an airport accredited by the American Association of Museums—feature almost twenty galleries throughout the terminals.
(I’d like to extend a special thank you to the show’s curator, McKinley Williams, and the Assistant Curator of Exhibitions for the SF Airport Museums, Nicole Mullen, for the tour!).
