Marimekko, With Love

with Exhibition Curator Shauna McCabe


Join Marimekko, With Love exhibition curator Dr. Shauna McCabe as she explores the origins of Finland’s iconic design label and creation of this breathtaking exhibition. Founded in 1951 by visionary designer Armi Ratia and her husband Viljo, Marimekko not only sparked an international revolution in post-WWII pattern and textile production, but captured a new philosophy based on the power of design in everyday life. Dr. McCabe is the current Director of Art Gallery of Guelph in Ontario, and the former Executive Director of Textile Museum of Canada, who produced this exhibition.

Cost: Free with admission
