There are 5 days remaining in 2017 so we thought we would countdown and share with you some of the items and ideas we would put in our time capsule. For us they straddle the very specific space of the timely with the timeless; sometimes sublimely anachronistic, fundamentally classic, and are reflective of a value system we hold true to.
The Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum’s current exhibit: Access + Ability, is a “platform for the growing movement toward accessibility and inclusive design”.
These prosthetic leg covers adorn and add a human silhouette to artificial limbs. Intended as a fashion accessory, the goal is to give amputees choice to select from a large variety of colors and patterns and the ability to shop in the same way they choose clothes.
Access+Ability is made possible in part by support from Esme Usdan Exhibition Endowment Fund, Cooper Hewitt Master’s Program Fund, and August de los Reyes.
Access+Ability is presented in partnership with New York City’s Mayor’s Office for People with Disabilities.
On view until September 18, 2018.
