Signed by Vera: Scarves by an Iconic Designer


May 17 – June 29, 2014




Featuring examples from the prolific designer’s 40-year career, this exhibition will draw from the Goldstein’s collection of approximately 550 Vera Neumann scarves.  From humble beginnings in a New York City kitchen, Neumann’s designs captured the zeitgeist of the tumultuous postwar years and propelled the designer to international fame.  Her decision to sign her colorful scarves transformed them from simple accessories to “Veras,” coveted by women the world over. 

Curator: Natasha Thoreson
