Murray Hill's Private Tour of Vera Paints a Scarf at The Museum of Arts and Design
Join us for an exclusive, private tour of Vera Paints a Scarf at The Museum of Arts and Design with Mr. Showbiz himself, Murray Hill! More about Vera Paints a Scarf Exhibition: Vera Paints a Scarf celebrates the work of artist Vera Neumann (1907-1993) and her contributions to the field of American design. Neumann was among the most successful female design entrepreneurs of the 20th century, and an originator of the American lifestyle brand. Over the course of her career, which spanned from her label’s debut in 1942 to her death in 1993, Neumann produced an iconic line of women's scarves all signed with a cursive “Vera” and stamped with a ladybug, as well as thousands of textile patterns based on her drawings, paintings, and collages. This exhibition will be the first to comprehensively examine her career—and highlights the keys to her success: her joyful and inventive aesthetic, democratic design ethos, fusion of craft and mass production, and clever marketing.
