NYC’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum

Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum

2 East 91st Street, New York, NY 10128

The Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum is one of two of the thirteen museums of the Smithsonian Institute (the other being the Museum of the American Indian). It is the only museum in the United States devoted exclusively to historic and contemporary design.

One of the most intersting things about this Museum is the following which is excerpted from their site:

Simply by making an appointment-no academic or professional affiliation is necessary-you can access the rich holdings of the Museum’s Library, Archives, and four curatorial departments: Applied Arts and Industrial Design, Drawings and Prints, Textiles, and Wallcoverings. Designers seeking inspiration for new product lines draw ideas from the diversity of the collections. Scholars and students exploring the history of design use the collections as a primary resource. Writers seeking historical authenticity refer to them for firsthand experience of objects. Collectors-novice and seasoned-use the collections to expand their understanding and develop their expertise.

The Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum is the only museum in the nation devoted exclusively to historic and contemporary design. The Museum presents compelling perspectives on the impact of design on daily life through active educational programs, exhibitions, and publications.

The museum holds more than 250,000 items, including drawings, prints, textiles, furniture, metalwork, ceramics, glass, wall coverings and woodwork spanning 3,000 years and cultures from around the world; a 60,000-volume library includes 5,000 rare books.
Architecture: Landmark 1902 Andrew Carnegie mansion by Babb, Cook and Willard.

As with all other NYC museums, the Cooper Hewitt has ongoing exhibitions for one to explore. There are also educational programs which seek to explore the role of design in everyday life. These programs are designed for all. Adults, educators, students, interns and others.
