Cooper-Hewitt Director


Over the past several months, Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum’s Search Committee has been hard at work conducting an international search for a new Director.

I had the pleasure of meeting recently with Ton Vriens, a Dutch documentary filmmaker and journalist who, through his foundation Turtle Tree, is working with women in Haiti to develop a felt-making co-operative, with the goal of achieving economic and social independence for the members of the self-governed group.
