Would like to see...

Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay
March 18–June 5, 2011

Known primarily as an abstract painter and colorist, Sonia Delaunay applied her talents and theories to all areas of visual expression, including graphics, interiors, theater and film, fashion and textiles. A trademark of Delaunay's work is the sense of movement and rhythm created by the simultaneous contrasts of certain colors. This exhibition will focus on fashion designs from her own Atelier Simultané in Paris during the 1920s, as well as textiles designed for the Metz & Co. department store in Amsterdam in the 1930s. from press release.

What I like about the exhibit is it will showcase her paintings, textiles, finished clothing pieces, and fashion drawings all together.

I just have to make sure that I go on a gorgeous day as the Cooper Hewitt museum has the most lovely garden for lunch.
