In conjunction with our latest exhibition, Acquired! Shaping the National Design Collection, we invite Cooper Hewitt members to join us for an evening with award-winning designers and weavers Helena Hernmarck and Elizabeth Whelan. In conversation with Acting Director of Curatorial, Matilda McQuaid, Hernmarck and Whelan will discuss the innovations and inspirations which define their practices.

A light cocktail reception will follow the conversation. We encourage you to arrive early to view Acquired! Shaping the National Design Collection, before the museum closes to the public at 6 p.m.

If you are not a member and would like to attend, please visit Cooper Hewitt Membership or email to join at any level.
