Description:
Docent-led tour of Norman Bel Geddes exhibit announced
The Harry Ransom Center offers free docent-led tours of the exhibition "I Have Seen the Future: Norman Bel Geddes Designs America" every Sunday.

Norman Bel Geddes (1893-1958) was a designer, futurist and urban planner who sought to transform modern American society through design and his dynamic vision of the future. Many products and practices now taken for granted can be traced directly back to Geddes. When you drive on an interstate highway, attend a multimedia Broadway show, dine in a sky-high revolving restaurant or watch a football game in an all-weather stadium, you owe a debt of gratitude to Bel Geddes.

Bel Geddes produced streamlined designs for products and ideas as diverse as home appliances, flying cars and floating airports. Futurama, his best-known design for the 1939-1940 New York World's Fair, was a giant model of a city in 1960. Visitors to the popular installation donned buttons boldly proclaiming "I Have Seen the Future."

All docent tours begin with a brief introduction to the Ransom Center and the Gutenberg Bible.
