New exhibit opens at Kruger Miniatures Gallery

The Kruger Collection will present "A Global View of Interior Design," on display in Architecture Hall beginning March 28. The exhibition explores furniture use and design of various world cultures and the influence of outside cultures on American and European interior design. The exhibition will run through March 2006.

The Kruger Collection was founded in 1997 with the donation of Eloise Kruger's 20,000-piece collection of 1:12 scale miniatures. Kruger began assembling her collection in the late 1930s and it includes the work of top miniature artists including Eric Pearson, Eugene Kupjack, Bob Carlisle, Warren Dick, Mell Prescott and Betty Valentine.

A gallery opening will be 4:30 p.m. March 31 following an address by Susan S. Szenasy, editor in chief of Metropolis Magazine. In conjunction with the exhibition opening, volume five of In.Form, a journal of architecture, design, and material culture, will be available for purchase.

The Kruger Gallery is on the first floor of Architecture Hall-west. Hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. or by appointment. For more information or to schedule a tour, contact Amber Mohr, curator, 402-472-3560, or e-mail
