Pixar and Thom Browne Selects at Cooper Hewitt Museum

I cannot believe today is June 1st! Where did May go exactly? I think June is going to go quickly as I have many appointments lined up in the city. I really should just move there, but that's a whole other story! We are back at the amazing Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum. They have 2 great exhibits that I had to show you! 

The Pixar: The Design of the Story is just wonderful for children and those who love the Pixar films. 

Here is some information from their website: 

This November, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum will present the fourth installment of its Design by Hand series, which celebrates the craftsmanship, innovations and merits of pioneering design organizations. Held Nov. 12–14, the fall series will spotlight and feature creative staff from Pixar Animation Studios, and takes place in conjunction with “Pixar: The Design of Story,” on view in the museum’s Process Lab through Aug. 7, 2016.
“As seen in Cooper Hewitt’s current installation ‘Pixar: The Design of Story,’ Pixar’s design process most often commences with hand sketches, paintings and models, which inform their imaginative characters and films,” said Caroline Baumann, director of Cooper Hewitt. “Because of this critical role of the hand, they are a fitting partner for our Design by Hand series, which offers the public a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be inspired by the world’s leading designers.”
I don't know about you, but I just loved UP, made me a little sad, but a great film 
I own the film Ratatouille, my Mom and I enjoyed this so very much. It was neat to see their sketches in this exhibit. 

Wal-E was another one I really liked, Pixar makes such great films! 

For the next installment of the museum’s Selects series, fashion designer Thom Browne explores ideas of reflection and individuality with an installation that includes more than 50 of the museum’s historic and contemporary mirrors and frames. The exhibition is the 13th in the ongoing series in which prominent designers, artists, and architects are invited to mine and interpret the museum’s collection of more than 210,000 objects.
