Description

Thirty six modern objects will be highlighted in this internationally touring exhibition. Patent drawings, vintage advertisements, as well as more historical pieces will be highlighted. Originally organized by the renowned Vitra Museum in Germany, Hidden Heros is a colorful, innovative exhibition in and of itself.

Many of these inventions and innovations are the same as they were years ago, which proves their worth and reliability, as well as the accomplishment of their designers and inventors. Things like coffe filters, coat hangers, Band-Aids: all things we take for granted in today's world, but things that were groundbreaking at one point in time, yet still prove their worth today.

San Jose's Museum of Art is proud to be one of only two venues in the US to offer this exhibit, along with the Vitra Museum in Germany and the Science Museum in London.
