Field Trip: Lace in Translation






My friend D and I spent a glorious Fall day in Philadelphia today at the Design Center at Philadelphia University.

It's a small, but lovely collection of lace-inspired work by two Dutch designers (Tord Boontje of 'Target' fame being the most well-known), and a female Canadian artist who was an industrial welder prior to going to art school.

We had perfect weather and the trees really cooperated in showing off their stunning Fall colors.

A 'two glasses of wine' lunch at Le Bus topped off the perfect day! :)

It is free and runs through April 3, 2010, so check it out!

Very interesting, totally different, and beautifully done. I'm glad you had good weather too. That always helps. It looks really fascinating. :)
