First Hand: Architects, Artists, and Designers from the L.J. Cella Collection
First Hand highlights the diverse ways in which architects, designers, and artists use their hands as sources of inspiration, contemplation, and production. Assembling an impeccable selection of drawings and artwork from the L.J. Cella Collection, the exhibition draws our attention to how architects convey spatial ideas in two dimensions and how artists use fiber, wood, and clay to create three-dimensional objects. Featuring exquisite architectural drawings by Daniel Libeskind, Carlos Diniz, and Lawrence Halprin alongside elegant artworks by Alma Allen and Sheila Hicks, the exhibition reveals how spontaneous drawing, meticulous craftsmanship, and humble materials can become essential components in the creative process when transformed by the artist’s hand.
