SHOW and TELL

For most designers, art museums are inspiration for our daily craft. The Los Angeles Contemporary Museum of Art (LACMA) is one our personal favorite haunts. Inside LACMA’s gift shop,  you can find reprints of Van Gogh, Picasso and Matisse, and at leas one true original-Wilshire Boulevard Linen Tea Towels, part of the Lindy Sue product line designed by Linda Warren. Each one celebrates a landmark L.A. street and is suitable for framing. Available at LindySues.com.
