Rättigheter: Culture Object
In the early aughts, Damon’s purview expanded to include historical design, with a focus on mid-20th century production and proto-Studio Glass. Recognized as a leading expert after years of study and careful research, he has published a book and numerous articles, served as board member of Art Glass Forum | NY, and was elected a Fellow of the Corning Museum of Glass.
Since 2014 Damon has applied his knowledge of historical art and design to develop a program that gives form to an expanded vision of contemporary art by engaging functional typologies in a salon format setting. The culmination of this vision is Culture Object, which Damon opened in March 2020 in Midtown Manhattan and subsequently mounted over two dozen solo and group exhibitions.
