Elmhurst Art Museum presents the U.S. debut of Playboy Architecture, 1953-1979, featuring an extensive collection of photographs, films, architectural models and more from Playboy magazine’s inception in 1953 through the 1970s. Curated by Professor Beatriz Colomina and Pep Aviles in collaboration with the Ph.D. program of the School of Architecture and the Media and Modernity program at Princeton University, the exhibition showcases how architecture and design played a role in creating the Playboy fantasy as well as how Playboy magazine came to influence the world of architecture and design.
Staged in the Mies van der Rohe-designed McCormick House at the museum, the exhibition will feature models of archetypal design projects such as the Playboy Townhouse and the "Big Bunny," the largest and most luxurious private aircraft in existence, designed for Hugh Hefner by Elmhurst resident Daniel Czubak.
We will meet as a group to see the exhibit,
After we view the exhibit, we will have
a swanky cocktail party on the Skycube patio!
This will be a ticketed event, as we are making a donation
per person and providing refreshments for the party.
