Friends and colleagues of many decades, Kendrick Kellogg, James Hubbell, and Wallace Cunningham have spent their entire professional lives in the San Diego region. Each is strongly influenced by the geography and climate of southern California and Baja, Mexico, and their work responds to the friendliness of the sea, the light and the accepting hills and land.
This exhibition will highlight the trio’s architecture and design creations, which are original, imaginative and poetic, evoking a romantic aesthetic and expressive of the principles of the artist-craftsman’s movement. A publication will accompany the exhibition.
THREE ON THE EDGE is part of the AMERICAN ICONS Exhibition Series. Beginning in June 2014 and throughout 2015 the Museum will mount a series of exhibitions to celebrate the imagination, inspiration and innovation of Americans who have for more than three centuries created stunning works of folk art, craft and design – our shared American Icons. AMERICAN ICONS is generously sponsored by Just Folk.
