This collaborative exhibition between Pratt Institute and General Motors highlights the enormously talented designers and sculptors, trained by Pratt and hired by General Motors Design, whose creative vision shaped the look of American life in the twentieth century and the natural relationship formed between these two organizations in the 1940s that would result in an unimagined creative output that continues today.
