Notes from the archive: Museum exhibits have the joy and responsibility of cataloging the work on review so that the viewer is surprised, educated, enticed and hopefully experiences a sense of marvel from what the exhibit offers. This catalogue totally delivers on all the above. Tom Loeser, co-curator and Professor of Art at UW, Madison shares his own personal insight in his essay, "The Inside Story on Studio Furniture".  “In the end function is still the crucial identifying marker that distinguishes the pieces (in this show) from work that is pure sculpture. One result of the functional aspect is that furniture objects not only have a viewer but also a user.”
