Making of an Exhibition

A small group of Cooper-Hewitt Members had the special privilege of going on an installation tour of Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay. In the galleries, geometric prints popped with color and movement. Members previewed gorgeous gouache on paper and finished fashion pieces—embroidered swimsuits and a coat made for silent film star Gloria Swanson. Our last stop was in what was once Carnegie’s billiard room to see Rythme Coloré (Colored Rhythm). Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay will be on view March 18 – June 5th, 2011. Upcoming highlights: Opening Reception: Members at the Contributing level are invited to the opening on March 17. Join today! Public Program: Sonia Delaunay: A Conversation Among Friends on March 18.
