At The Noyes House
Organized by Blum & Poe, Mendes Wood DM, Object & Thing
In the 1950s, architect Eliot Noyes, looking to resettle with his family in the suburbs outside New York City, designed a house to be erected on a sylvan property in New Canaan, Connecticut.
The Eliot Noyes House has since become known as a paragon of mid-century modernism, even gaining a spot on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008. For the first time this fall, the residence will become the site of a contemporary art exhibition, aptly titled "At The Noyes House." The show came together thanks to the combined efforts of Blum & Poe, Mendes Wood DM, and the art-meets-design fair Object & Thing.
Pieces by artists and designers—from sculptural works by Lynda Benglis and Alma Allen to paintings by Mimi Lauter and Antonio Obá—will be displayed throughout the home alongside the Noyes family's original decor.
