Event Notes

× This presentation by Winnipeg Architecture Foundation historian Jeffrey Thorsteinson will explore the trajectory and legacy of Art Deco design in Manitoba, Canada, and around the world. During the 1920s and 30s, Art Deco design transformed the look of buildings, furniture, jewelry, and other elements of everyday life. This new style was forward-looking, glamorous, and energetic, embracing Jazz Age cultural change. The Art Deco was also fluid, drawing on everything from transportation design to exotic and ancient art.

Jeffrey Thorsteinson is an architectural historian with the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation and an instructor at the University of Manitoba. He recently co-wrote the book Green Blankstein Russell Architects: An Architectural Legacy.
