It's always exciting to witness a master's exploration in a new medium. At 82 years old, legendary graphic designer Milton Glaser reminds us that it's never too late to become a student of a new field. His recent work with Lapchi, an Oregon-based carpet company that specializesin hand-woven, hand-dyed custom-made rugs made in Nepal, explores the traditional art of rugmaking.
The result of this collaboration, a new 34-piece
rug collection, is now on view (for one week only) at the Santa Monica Museum of Art
in Los Angeles. To see the artist's virtuosity in a new light has an uplifting
effect. From Core77.com
