Functional Sculpture: Furniture from the Upper Midwest

When does furniture become art? To answer this question, Carleton's winter exhibition presents chairs, tables, cabinets and other types of furniture by fifteen Upper Midwest furniture makers, sculptors, and industrial designers. The objects in Functional Sculpture range from exquisitely crafted one-of-a-kind studio furniture to multiples designed for mass production. The artists, from Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan, are united in their entrepreneurial attitudes and individualistic spirits.
