"Created between the late 50’s and mid-70’s the pieces accurately reflect a tumultuous period of global change in both society and design, where upheaval and destabilization were the norm. More specifically, they reveal color’s innate functionality as a reference tool and container of meaning. Their collective message is equally poignant today - dehumanized cities must be reconsidered, the public is worthy of meaningful communal experiences, and color is an agile and powerful tool in the effort to stitch together society’s disparate components."
