Beauty- Cooper Hewitt Design Triennial

This show at the San Jose Museum of Art deserves a lot more than the hour and half I was there, so I’ll be back for more, But meanwhile, here’s a little peek at some the the Beauties in the show.
I was totally fascinated by these 3-D printed  and deceptively simple glass pieces that cast gorgeous shadows and reflections. By Neri Oxman who had other strangely beautiful work in the show.

Giambattista Vali‘s combination of a frothy pink tulle skirt with a pajama top made me stop and look.

And I want to go back and sketch all the Afreaks on display. By the Haas Brothers.

I’ll be back for another (longer!) visit soonso you’ll see more sketches from the show.

    Such expressive sketches! Meetup’s South Bay Urban Sketchers are headed to the exhibition in January. I’ve put a link to your sketches to show the use of the multi-colored pencils.
