moafl-draper-jgomez.jpgJust a quick drive-by to let you know about a Dorothy Draper exhibition at the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale now through June 23. Here’s the 411 from them:

This retrospective features rarely seen drawings, sample books, vintage photographs, furnishings, and products from some of her most famous projects, including the Carlyle, Drake and Greenbrier. Items are displayed in galleries that evoke The Draper Touch,” a theatrical amalgam of baroque ornamentation, over-scaled stripes, cabbage rose prints, black-and-white checked floors and high-voltage color.

So if you are in the area, go ahead and get Draperized! Perhaps you need to be reminded to banish the beige! Also, I hear that the renovations at The Greenbrier are complete. It looks like  Draper’s former associate Carleton Varney did an amazing job. It’s also the perfect time of year to be in West Virginia.greenbrier-reno.jpg

More information and pictures about Dorothy Draper are here. You can buy Mr. Varney’s book about her here.greenbrier3_l.jpgPhoto one from MoAFL, Photo two from, Photo three from Southern Accents online
