About Weinberg Modern
About Weinberg Modern
Larry Weinberg operates Weinberg Modern in the New York Design Center. In addition to curating an ever-changing collection of unusual and important modernist design and art, Larry writes regularly on design topics for Interior Design Magazine and Modern Magazine. Weinberg Modern’s inventory ranges from vintage iconic examples to esoteric prototypes and fresh discoveries. Larry is a graduate of Amherst College and an alumnus of the Hagley Program in the History of Technology, University of Delaware. He has studied and worked at numerous museums, including Historic Deerfield, Strawbery Banke, and the Brooklyn Museum. In 1994, he co-founded the Lin-Weinberg Gallery, which became one of New York City's premiere showcases of vintage modernist furniture. Lin-Weinberg participated annually in Sanford Smith's Modernism show, and it hosted a number of design exhibitions, notably the blockbuster 1997 show entitled "Edward Wormley: The Other Face of Modernism." In December 2009, the Museum of the City of New York exhibited approximately 50 items from Lin-Weinberg's collection of mid-century American design in conjunction with their Eero Saarinen show. More recently, Larry curated a solo show titled "James Bearden: Life in Steel" at the New York Design Center, showcasing the work of this emerging artist.
