Johnny Swing: Design Sense is the first exhibition in a new series that explores the creative processes of innovative artists and designers working throughout New England today at the Shelburne Museum. Based in Brookline, Vermont, Johnny Swing is best known for his luxurious coin furniture and large-scale architectural lighting. Johnny Swing: Design Sense will provide visitors with a fascinating glimpse into the various phases of the artist’s philosophy and practice, from the early conceptual stages of sketching and model making to fabricating molds and engineering the structural elements, culminating in sophisticated works that blur the lines between art and design. During this opening event, Johnny will lead visitors through an engaging look at his process and work methods.
