Brooks Stevens: The Most Famous Designer You’ve Never Heard Of

Join Studebaker National Museum Curator Kyle Sater for an exploration into the life and works of Milwaukee-based industrial designer Brooks Stevens, who styled everything from the wide-mouth peanut butter jar to the famous Oscar Mayer Weinermobile. The presentation will be split into two parts: part one will cover Stevens’s vehicle designs—including his work for Studebaker—while part two will survey his work on household appliances, architecture, brand design, and more. And make sure to check out the museum’s new special exhibition, Mid-Century Master: The Designs of Brooks Stevens, after the talk!


The Studebaker Museum Speaker Series, presented by the Campisi Family Education Fund, is held in the Wiekamp Auditorium. Regular Speaker Series admission is $2. Regular admission fees apply to tour the Studebaker National Museum and The History Museum. Studebaker National Museum and Campus members are admitted free!
