Signed by Vera: Scarves by an Iconic Designer, curated by Natasha Thoreson at the Goldstein Museum of Design, St. Paul, MN.

Featuring examples from the prolific designer’s 40-year career, the exhibition draws from the Goldstein’s collection of approximately 550 Vera Neumann scarves. Neumann’s designs captured the zeitgeist of the tumultuous postwar years and propelled the designer to international fame. Her decision to sign her colorful scarves transformed them from simple accessories to “Veras,” coveted by women the world over.
