Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958) was an innovative stage and industrial designer, futurist, and urban planner who created and promoted a dynamic vision of the future—streamlined, technocratic, and optimistic. His most notable effort was his Futurama display for the General Motors "Highways and Horizons" exhibit at the 1939-40 New York World's Fair.
The Harry Ransom Center's exhibition "I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America" will demonstrate how Bel Geddes shaped and continues to influence American culture and the American lifestyle. Using his collection at the Ransom Center, the exhibition will bring together never-before-exhibited drawings, models, photographs, and films.
