It has been two years, since Bob Bockius, of Mitchell Displays has bought the Southfield Antique, Art and Modernism show and show vendors have increased coming from all over the country to the Southfield Pavilion both in October and for the for the Michigan Modernism show in late April. “This is beyond just a show where people can purchase pieces,” Bockius explained. “We want to make our shows accessible to everybody, with a broad mix of dealers and these shows are filled with history, and is an experience people of all ages can enjoy.”
Dealers from across the country are displaying their best of the Antique, Art and the Modernism movement. Vendors of the nation’s most prominent Modernism merchants will offer pieces designed from designers such as Frank Lloyd Wright, Louis Comfort Tiffany, Herman Miller, Heywood Wakefield, the Stickleys and Salvador Dali and other designers’ works of the Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Prairie School, Arts and Crafts, Surrealistic and Neo-Classical schools of design.

There’s something for everyone to gain, all ages.”
