Harry Bertoia, a Midcentury Modern metal worker, designed iconic wire grid chairs, handcrafted silver jewelry, constructed monumental public sculptures, tooled monographics and created sounding sculptures. Come see the exhibition sponsored by the MSU Department of Architecture featuring samplings of all of Bertoia’s work from bushes to tonals. If the name does not sound familiar, it will; you have seen the chairs in magazines. Bertoia worked with Charles Eames, Eero Saarinen, and IM Pei. His daughter, Celia Bertoia, has made Bozeman her home. While she spends much time traveling and lecturing on Bertoia all over the country, the Architecture Department invited her to do so in her hometown and she is thrilled.
