Color Decoded: The Textiles of Richard Landis

From Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum (previously featured in the 05-25-2018 Scout Report), the exhibition Color Decoded: The Textiles of Richard Landis explored the masterful weaving of pattern and color from this celebrated American artist. Although the physical exhibition closed in 2019, visitors can still learn much from the materials available on the page linked above. The section About the Exhibition details Landis's life and craft, including his explorations of color combinations and his use of weaving to create and blend new colors. In the section From the Blog, readers can find interviews with Landis discussing his work and the exhibition. Finally, in the menu on the right side of the page, visitors can click "Color Decoded: The Textiles of Richard Landis," to be taken to another page which features 22 of the 23 objects displayed in the exhibition. Each object (which can be enlarged by clicking) can be viewed through image or video, and features text describing the inspiration for the work and the technique employed. Students and aficionados of art and color are sure to benefit from the digital materials available from this exhibition.
