Ruth Adler Schnee: A Passion for Color
The Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo, Venice, Italy, June 4 - September 4, 2011
A Passion for Color is an exhibition of modern textiles designed by the American artist Ruth Adler Schnee. The exhibition is hosted at The Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo in Venice, Italy. It occupies the ground floor space and consists of original hand-printed fabrics from the ’40s and ’50s as well as current woven textiles paired with sketches and quotes from the artist.
The work was complemented by a documentary film, "The Radiant Sun: Designer Ruth Adler Schnee" (directed by filmmaker Terri Sarris and co-produced by Sarris and Eisenbach) and a glass installation in which the artist's designs are interpreted by Murano glass master craftsmen.
