Salon: Inaugural Event featuring show and tell with Love Menu Art

April 30, 2016, Brooklyn, New York

Design Nation's first go at a salon event at our studio in Brooklyn resulted in a convergence of over 60 friends, artists, designers, collaborators and preservationists for an evening of conversation and inspiration. Eugen Beer and Barbara McMahon, collectors and caretakers of menu design dating from the late 19th century through the 1970s joined as special guests to share original examples and discuss their process. Working with public institutions, private collectors and conservators, there mission is to save these text and image based relics which, as they explained, are invaluable reflections of the period from which they originated.
