By Vitra Design Museum, The Exhibition Featuring More Than 700
By Folk Art And Pop Art, Girard Created A Bold, Colorful, And
Girard (Born in May 24, 1907 in New York City, NY and died
on December 31, 1993 in Santa Fe, New Mexico) was one of the most
important and prolific designers of the 20th century. He created
stunning interiors for restaurants, private homes, corporate offices,
and even airplanes! He created textiles, typography, and tableware.
He designed exhibitions, toys, and a whole city street in Columbus,
Indiana. Inspired by folk art and pop art, Girard created a bold,
colorful, charismatic universe. He warmed up modernism with his
whimsical, optimistic patterns and designs.
The Palm Springs Art Museum (101 Museum Drive, Palm Springs, CA 92262, 760-322-4800) has announced the West Coast debut of Alexander Girard: A Designer’s Universe. This exhibition, organized by Vitra Design Museum, presents the colorful universe of Alexander Girard through more than 400 objects—textiles, drawings, furniture, graphics, film, and folk art—in a richly layered installation and accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue. Exhibition visitors will experience one of his best-known interiors—that of the 1957 Miller House in Columbus, Indiana—through a full-scale replica of its iconic conversation pit, which will be a place for repose and public programs.
The show will be on view from November 23, 2019 through March 1, 2020.
Practicing from the late 1920s until the late 1970s, Girard worked mostly for the American furniture company Herman Miller after becoming director of its textile division in 1951. Girard’s clients also included companies like Braniff International Airways and John Deere for which he created fresh new corporate brand identities, which, in the case of Braniff, extended from the planes themselves to the flight crew uniforms and passenger lounges. In addition to Girard’s own designs, this exhibition presents the creative universe from which Girard took his inspiration: folk art from all over the world, which the designer collected throughout his life. A selection of 300 objects from his folk art collection, gifted by him to the International Folk Art Museum in Santa Fe, is also featured in the exhibition.
The Palm Springs Art Museum was founded in 1938 as the Palm Springs Desert Museum at La Plaza in downtown Palm Springs. Natural science exhibits, Cahuilla Indian artifacts, and hiking excursions dominated the institution’s programming.
museum moved several times within the downtown Palm Springs area
before building its first permanent structure in 1958, located on the
southwest corner of Tahquitz-McCallum Way and Indian Ave. Over the
years, fine art gained a greater measure of focus.
By the late 60’s it was evident the 10,000 square foot building was quickly becoming too small. In 1974, architect E. Stewart Williams was commissioned to design the current building for the museum. Further growth resulted in the construction of the Doris and Walter N. Marks Administration Building and the 1996 completion of the Steve Chase Wing and the Education Center.
renovations, and even bigger donations of art, transformed the
institution, which also sharpened its programming with nationally
significant exhibitions. In April 2004, the Board of Trustees decided
to shift the museum’s focus from a multi-disciplinary museum to a
world-class art museum with a vibrant theater program. In evaluating
the current strengths and directions of the museum, it became clear
that the art collections were growing and that the art audience was
expanding – primarily in the areas of architecture, photography,
and contemporary glass.
A study of the area’s other institutions also brought a realization that there were other established organizations providing exhibitions in the natural sciences. One year later, in April 2005, the museum officially changed its name from Palm Springs Desert Museum to Palm Springs Art Museum to reflect its emphasis on the visual and performing arts.
museum remains committed to serving as an innovative community
cultural center, and expanding its exhibitions, programs, and
services in the visual and performing arts.
In 2012, the museum opened a satellite exhibition and education space in Palm Desert (Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Desert, 72-567 Highway 111, Palm Desert, CA 92260, 760-346-5600), which features an architecturally distinctive building named The Galen that presents ongoing and temporary exhibitions of internationally important art and is surrounded by the Faye Sarkowsky Sculpture Garden that features significant sculpture works surrounded by beautifully landscaped gardens.
hub of the museum’s exploration of architecture and design features
related exhibitions and educational programs.
The collection also includes Frey House II, the historically significant residence in Palm Springs that architect Albert Frey designed for himself in 1963 and bequeathed to the museum upon his death in 1998.
Accredited by the American Association of Museums, the Palm Springs Art Museum has 28 galleries, two sculpture gardens, four classrooms, a resource centers, an artists center, five storage vaults, a 85-seat lecture hall, a 433-seat theater, a 1,000 square-foot store, and a popular local bistro.
variety of educational programs and activities will take place in
connection to the Palm Springs iteration; additionally, the museum’s
annual gala and biggest fundraiser on January
26, 2020 will be Girard themed in décor and ambience to bring
even greater attention to the exhibition.
Alexander Girard: A Designer’s Universe‘s global sponsors are Herman Miller and Maharam. Palm Springs Art Museum’s presentation is organized by Brooke Hodge, Director of Architecture and Design, with generous support from Joan & Gary Gand. Additional support is provided by Ellen Donaldson.

Mallord William Turner (1775–1851)
was a central figure in the Romantic movement and is considered to be
among the greatest landscape painters in Western art. Long admired
for his ingenuity, originality, and passion, Turner strove to convey
the feeling of awe aroused by nature’s immensity and power—its
palpable atmospheres, pulsating energy, the drama of storms and
disasters, and the transcendent effect of pure light. On view in
for the Sublime are
seminal oil paintings, luminous watercolors, and evocative sketches
selected from Tate’s Turner Bequest. The exhibition conveys
highlights of the artist’s career, from vertiginous mountain scenes
and stormy seascapes to epic history paintings and mysterious views

an installation of fifty American flags—one from each
state—suspended row after row from the ceiling and surrounding a
stage where museum visitors and special guests are invited to speak
or present performances relating to the meaning of the flag in their
own lives. The flags themselves symbolize a nation that has survived
tumult and stress. They were collected from 2011 to 2016, when
Ziegler periodically drove across the United States with a supply of
new American flags, offering a broad spectrum of society—from
suburban residents to farmers and small business owners—an
opportunity to receive new flags in exchange for their old torn and
weathered ones. Displayed in a gallery, the symbolism of rows of
tattered, irregular flags encourages reflection on America’s
identity, history, and future.

the end of the nineteenth century, the Glasgow
Style emerged as the major manifestation of Art
Nouveau in Britain and established Glasgow as the
Second City of the Empire. This exhibition showcases Charles
Rennie Mackintosh (1868–1928)—the greatest exponent of the
Glasgow Style—as an architect, designer, and artist, and
contextualizes his production within a larger circle of designers and
craftspeople in the major Scottish city. Mackintosh worked most
closely with his wife, Margaret
Macdonald (1864–1933); Margaret’s sister, Frances
Macdonald (1873–1921); and Frances’ husband, James
Herbert McNair (1868–1955). They met as students at the
progressive Glasgow School of Art in 1892 and together were known as
influences from the Arts
and Crafts Movement, Celtic
Revival, and Japonism,
Glasgow artists created their own modern design aesthetic synonymous
with sleek lines and emphatic geometries expressed in a wide range of
materials. The exhibition presents 165 works of fine and decorative
art, including architectural drawings, books, ceramics, furniture,
posters, textiles, and watercolors, drawn from Glasgow’s most
significant public and private collections.

throughout the world to reflect the splintered experience of
migration, identity, tradition, and culture often prevalent in
diasporic communities. In a single sculpture, one can find African
tribal jewelry, colorful feathers, light bulbs, Murano glass, and
South Asian antiques. This is the first major survey of Banerjee’s
work in the United States and includes large-scale installations,
sculptures, and paintings produced over two decades. While the works
can be enjoyed as vividly colored and sensuously layered sculptures,

is the first museum exhibition in the United States to focus on
medieval art made in the northern Italian city of Bologna. Home to
the oldest university in Europe, Bologna fostered a unique artistic
culture at the end of the Middle Ages. With its large population of
sophisticated readers, the city became the preeminent center of
manuscript production south of the Alps and it helped bring about a
revolution in the medieval book trade. Manuscripts circulated in a
thriving market of scribes, illuminators, booksellers, and customers
operating mostly outside traditional monastic scriptoria. The
university initially specialized in law, and many law books were
illuminated in Bologna with brightly colored scenes. University
professors enjoyed high social status and were buried in impressive
stone tombs carved with classroom scenes.
approximately 65 objects in the exhibition span from 1250 to 1400,
from the first great flowering of manuscript illumination in Bologna
to the beginnings of the construction and decoration of the ambitious
Basilica of San Petronio in the city’s Piazza Maggiore. Lenders
include the Cleveland Museum of Art, J. Paul Getty Museum, Lilly
Library, New York Public Library, and University of Chicago Library.

Ralph Lauren, Brandon Maxwell, King Ranch, and Erin Wasson Help Mark the Brand’s 135th Year in Business
Lucchese Bootmaker, headquartered in El Paso Texas, is celebrating its 135th anniversary this year with a variety of partnerships and capsule collections. Known for making the finest cowboys boots on the planet, Lucchese has always balanced rugged, frontier traditions with an appeal to those focused on aesthetic.
Lucchese Fall News Press Release Image
Below are a few of the highlights of how Lucchese is marking its anniversary this year:
Erin Wasson in the Jacqueline Boot: Designed with Texas native Erin Wasson, the Jacqueline boot ($1,595 with free ground shipping) is a traditional western silhouette for the modern woman. The smooth black goat is accented by white stitch pull holes and piping. Single stitch welt construction. Leather sole. Handmade in Texas.
ERIN WASSON: Continuing their presence in the style arena, Lucchese just released a limited collection of fashion-focused boots with model/designer Erin Wasson. The brand has partnered with another iconic Texas brand — Neiman Marcus – to provide wider access to both traditional boots and fashion boots alike. This move signifies a shift in consumer demand, as exotic cowboy boots are now becoming a staple in consumer wardrobes, available at a wider range of retailers ranging from Western-focused to luxury fashion.
The King Ranch Barn Boot
KING RANCH: Lucchese has partnered with another legendary Texas brand, the King Ranch, to produce a limited edition collection of boots that are rugged enough for the harsh environment of South Texas. In addition to this partnership, Lucchese has released a well-reviewed technical product called the Barn Boot, its first foray into the “work boot” category. The mud and grime releasing outsole and cushioned insole was an immediate hit with both new and long-time Lucchese loyalists.
RALPH LAUREN: In addition to staying true to its roots with traditional products, Lucchese was in the spotlight during New York Fashion Week in September. Ralph Lauren, who has worn Lucchese boots for many years, selected them as his favorite bootmaker. Lucchese worked with Mr. Lauren to create co-branded boots which debuted in Central Park at the legendary designer’s 50th-anniversary collection show.
BRANDON MAXWELL: Fashion designer and fellow Texan Brandon Maxwell used custom boots as the invite for guests at his Spring/Summer 2019 New York Fashion Week show.”It was a dream to work with Lucchese on our invitations,” said Brandon. “Lucchese is a quintessential Texas brand so to share this bit of my home state with our guests immediately showcased hospitality. Seeing videos of friends and guests receive this big Texas dose of generosity made it all the more special.“
Texas-based Lucchese is a legendary bootmaker and iconic brand of the American West. Applying the same craftsmanship principles and techniques since 1883, Lucchese artisans use only the finest leathers, preeminent materials and a proprietary twisted cone last to construct boots of unrivaled quality, fit, comfort and style.
