Making lace out of vinyl
This exhibition featured some of the most delicate textiles from the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection: lace, some of it centuries old. Since the exhibition would be in a room painted dark blue, we used off-white text to complement the textiles. And we wanted to have large panes of glass covered with vinyl printed to look like lace. The overall effect was stunning, and created a cozy little jewel box for visitors to explore.
