Sonia Delaunay was an active force in bringing the discoveries of Cubism and abstraction into the applied arts. “By showing her work at Cooper-Hewitt, the constant interplay between art and design will be strong and clear and by virtue of Delaunay’s glorious colors, a very joyful experience,” said Bill Moggridge, director of the museum. “This will be an extraordinary opportunity to see Delaunay’s work in a context that takes into consideration the diversity of her artistic talent and the deep connections between form, color and movement.” “Color Moves: Art and Fashion by Sonia Delaunay” runs through June 5 at the Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum, 2 East 91st Street at Fifth Avenue, (212) 849-8400, cooperhewitt.org.
