THE ART OF PLAY - A LEGACY EXHIBITION
Jim Miller Melberg - a Michigan Modernist. With Michigan’s rich history of design and manufacturing, we are honored to present a legacy exhibition showcasing works that span Miller Melberg’s 65+ year career between our Southfield and Detroit campuses. Curated as an artistic biography, the Southfield exhibition includes early sketches, maquette models, small-scale sculptures in a variety of media, and select finished art pieces. Our Detroit show foregrounds the “art of play” where the objects of design are Miller Melberg’s iconic Form, Inc. playscapes. The “play” theme is advanced in Miller Melberg’s later sculptures where he experiments with color and form in large-scale floor and wall pieces.
