Pillow Talk at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum

By Alicia Ybarbo

Who doesn’t love these?  The minute I saw them I was smiling…

Winter in NYC means checking out museums.  Last weekend my family and I went to the Cooper-Hewitt to check out their latest exhibit called “Design USA.”  This exhibit houses National Design Award winners from the past 10 years.  It was pretty cool for my kids to discover that toothbrushes (with their creative packaging), running shoes (with their bold colors) and shopping bags (with their cool graphics) are works of art.  My kids had fun looking through the exhibit and spent time designing their own creations (tote bags)… but they really enjoyed their time hangin’ with these pillows.

Who doesn’t love a little downtime mixed-in with their art?
