Registration to the spring edition of my program Design and Decorative Arts in NYC: Touring Collections, Museums, and Highlights is now open. This program, which celebrates its 11th anniversary this year, comes to explore the season's most exciting design events. Focusing on design culture and the decorative arts, it examines periods, styles, and idioms in modern and contemporary design by visiting NYC’s major collections, museum exhibitions, private galleries, art fairs, historic houses, and auction houses. We examine modes and directions that have shaped the course of design, as they are portrayed in the material world, furniture and furnishings, interior décor, porcelain, metalwork, ceramics, glass, textiles, and other accessories. In this season, we will visit museum exhibitions, design studios, a design fair, galleries, and we will meet with key figures in the local design scene who will share their passion for design and creativity.
