Public Tour

People sit working at large textile looms in front of a high wall of shelves filled to the brim with vibrant and colorful yarn and other kinds of thread; another person stands and watches their work.

In this curator guided tour of A Dark, a Light, a Bright: The Designs of Dorothy Liebes, visitors will discover the stories behind American textile designer, weaver, and color authority Dorothy Liebes. Liebes had a profound influence across design fields, helping to shape American tastes in areas from interiors and transportation to industrial design, fashion, and film. The “Liebes Look”—which combined vivid color, lush texture, and often a glint of metallic—became inextricably linked with the American modern aesthetic. Tour led by the exhibition’s co-curator, Alexa Griffith, Public Programs Manager .
