Design for a Living World Exhibition to Come to the Coral Gables Museum

7/13/12

The Coral Gables Museum is proud to announce that The Nature Conservancy is bringing its acclaimed Design for a Living World exhibition to the Museum, opening July 26.  The Nature Conservancy invited 10 designers to create objects from sustainable materials sourced from around the world.  Wood, plants, wool and other organic materials were transformed into intriguing objects, revealing extraordinary stories about regeneration and the human connection to the Earth’s lands and waters. Together designers and consumers can re-shape our economy and help advance a global conservation ethic by choosing sustainable materials that support rather than deplete endangered places. Design for a Living World, which premiered at New York’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum and traveled to Chicago and Phoenix, showcases the works of Ted Muehling, Stephen Burks, Yves Béhar, Abbott Miller, Kate Spade New York, Isaac Mizrahi, HellaJongerius, ChristienMeindertsma, EzriTarazi and Maya Lin.  This stop at the Coral Gables Museum will be the final chance to view this beautiful exhibition as The Nature Conservancy will have a closing party on October 25th with an opportunity to purchase these items during a live auction.

Entrance to the exhibit costs $7 for adults, $5 for children.  Tickets may be purchased by calling the Museum at 305-603-8067. Visit their website here.
