Rube Goldberg™: illustrated

Exhibition Name:
Rube Goldberg™: illustrated
Description:

Rube Goldberg was many things - an artist, writer, inventor and eventually, an adjective. At the heart of all of his creative efforts were the illustrations which become the entry points for deeper exploration of storytelling, historical biography and cultural context. Through more than 100 original artworks and objects from his family’s collection, the exhibition shares how Rube’s humorous vision redefined the utility of ordinary objects and everyday situations to tell inventive stories.
