Nature by Design

Nature by Design

Lowell, MA (USA) > As ATHM undergoes a significant transformation, this exhibit is currently open only to members, educational programs, and private groups.

Nature is the oldest and richest source of design inspiration. From the earliest paintings on cave walls, humans have interpreted the world around them—plants, animals, and natural phenomena—to create, ornament, and embellish objects. In all forms of art, from frescoes to sculpture to architecture, from printing to weaving to industrial design, nature has been a primary resource of ideas.
The objects in Nature by Design share a common characteristic: they are both artful and useful, functional and aesthetically pleasing. This exhibit explores the rise and decline of the great movements of art, from Classicism and Romanticism to Art Deco, and their impact on our culture, society, and economy. ATHM’s collections of textiles, clothing, advertising ephemera, and even machinery reflect our fascination with Nature by Design.

It is rich with history and artifacts that capture the major aspects of the ongoing struggle by the nation in general and African Americans in particular to define and make real the meaning of freedom. The exhibition illustrates how African Americans not only survived the challenges set before them, but crafted an important role for themselves in the nation, and how the nation was changed as a consequence of these struggles.
