Denver Post: Designing Women is 'completely unexpected and wonderfully audacious'

Our Designing Women exhibition, which closes Jan. 25, has received its second positive review from the Denver art critics. We’ve heard from Michael Paglia of Westword, now Kyle MacMillan of the Denver Post gives his opinion.

“ … the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center has veered in a completely unexpected and wonderfully audacious direction.”

“The exhibition has no connection to the museum's permanent holdings, which are focused on Latino, Southwestern and modern art, and that's the point: something offbeat and startlingly different … (and) has gained the institution heightened credibility nationally. The Textile Museum in Washington, D.C., has just agreed to present the exhibition from May 15 through Sept. 12, 2010.”

“Boosting their appeal is the museum's handsome, viewer-friendly installation, with introductory wall panels on the three designers, each including a painted enlargement of one of their trademark patterns by exhibit designer Laurel Swab.”
