$15,000 toward Modernist Eye: The Art and Design of Nathan Lerner, a traveling exhibition and catalogue organized by American studies scholar Astrid Böger and curator Roger Manley. Lerner’s photographic “light pictures” exemplified the utopian modernist training he received at Chicago’s New Bauhaus in the late 1930s. He later returned to the renamed School of Design as chairman of its product design workshop, utilizing his skills as a versatile designer of mass-market consumer goods.
