One of this season’s best blockbuster exhibitions also spotlights a legendary Schumacher collaborator: Vera Neumann. From now until January 26, 2020, at the Museum of Arts & Design (MAD) in New York City, “Vera Paints a Scarf: The Art and Design of Vera Neumann” celebrates the life and career of the iconic designer, whose work extended far beyond her well-known silk scarves to wallpaper, fabric, tabletop, fashion and more. We caught up with Elissa Auther, the show’s Chief Curator and MAD’s Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs, to find out more about what made Vera tick.
