The High Style of Dorothy Draper Exhibit at the Museum of the City of New York and In the Pink: The Legendary Life of Dorothy Draper at the Women’s Museum of Dallas

The Anton Family Foundation’s grants contributed to the presentation of the special Dorothy Draper exhibits at both the Museum of the City of New York and the Women’s Museum of Dallas.  We are proud to have supported the continuing legacy of Dorothy Draper and these retrospectives of the uniquely American style that she created. 

The High Style of Dorothy Draper examines many aspects of this remarkable woman's life and career. Rarely seen drawings, sample books, vintage photographs, furnishings, and products will be displayed in galleries that evoke the "Draper touch."  Her most important design commissions are featured, including The Carlyle Hotel and Hampshire House in New York City, The Camellia House restaurant at the Drake Hotel in Chicago, The Greenbrier in West Virginia, and the Arrowhead Springs Resort & Spa in California. Draper’s national influence will be demonstrated with newspaper and magazine articles, advertisements, and a rare video of her appearance on Edward R. Murrow’s television program in the 1950’s.
