In this lively discussion, Murray Moss, founder of the renowned New York design and art gallery MOSS, and Ellenor Alcorn, chair and Eloise W. Martin Curator of Applied Arts of Europe, rethink some stalwart emblems of conventional design, including the Art Institute’s own Thorne Miniature Rooms. They explore a range of topics—from America’s peculiar fascination with the Colonial Revival to ways of discovering unexpected inspiration, wit, and delight in the most traditional spaces.
