If you’re like me and have been intrigued by the image on this poster for the Norman Bel Geddes exhibit at the Ransom Center, you’d better get a move on because the exhibit is closing January 6th! From Austin’s Cultural Campus:
Norman Bel Geddes (1893–1958) was a designer, futurist, and urban planner who sought to transform modern American society through design and his dynamic vision of the future. When you drive on an interstate highway, attend a multimedia Broadway show, dine in a sky-high revolving restaurant, or watch a football game in an all-weather stadium, you owe a debt of gratitude to Geddes.
If you don’t live in Austin or can’t get to the Ransom Center before next Thursday, there’s also a book on the subject:
