To celebrate its 75th birthday, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum invited friends to submit works embellishing upon an architectural elevation of the Carnegie Mansion—a National Historic Landmark. The exhibition features the creative responses of numerous designers, architects, artists, photographers, and design enthusiasts, including Donald Deskey, Raymond Loewy, Ivan Chermayeff, Leo Lionni, Bill Cunningham, Shigeo Fukuda, Helen Frankenthaler, Horst P. Horst, Francesc Torres, Edward Fella, and Milton Glaser. This project was inspired by Charles Addams.
