Lewis Knauss' 2015 Museum Exhibitions

A textile designed by Lewis Knauss is on view in the "Making Design" Exhibition at the Cooper Hewitt Museum in the National Design Collection. The museum has just reopened after a major renovation.  Making Design brings together some 360 objects, including furniture, lighting fixtures, tableware, clothing, jewelry, books, and posters, collectively providing an overview of five key elements of design: line, form, texture, pattern, and color. Lewis Knauss’ piece, “Cloned Line”, cotton, 1996, is part of the Cooper’s permanent Textiles collection. 


Knauss also has work included in "Gifts From America 1948 – 2013" at the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia. “Gifts from America” aims to recognize that a considerable number of exhibits involve works by artists from the USA or those who worked there after emigration. The exhibition, which runs through early March of 2015 also includes works by artists whose creative career has had a telling impact on art development and collecting in the United States. Knauss’ piece, along with others in the exhibition will become part of the permanent collection at the Hermitage.
