See Bel Geddes' view of the future in New York
From 16 October 2013 To 10 February 2014Address
Museum of the City of New York, 1220 5th Avenue, New York, NY 10029
Norman 'Bel' Geddes was a theatrical and industrial designer who became the scene creator at the Metropolitan Opera of New York in 1918.
He was fascinated with the products we might all be using in the future and created his own visions of them from his studio in the 1920s and 1930s, including a teardrop-shaped car and an Art Deco house of tomorrow.
Bel Geddes exhibited at the 1939-40 World's Fair - and it is the creations from this event that guests at New York hotels can take a closer look at from this fall until spring.
I Have Seen the Future will be showing at the Museum of the City of New York from October 16th 2013 until February 10th 2014 and it is to bring together 200 never-before-seen drawings, models, photographs and films of theater sets and costumes for the fascination of visitors.
It promises to be an exciting depiction of the way in which people viewed the world in the early 20th century and could even lead would-be inventors to come up with a few ideas of their own.
Residents of the Millennium Broadway Hotel New York can get to the museum in just 15 minutes in a taxi.
