A sneaky peek at this year’s exhibition may brighten those winter blues

January is a gloomy month and all the rain that has been falling on the UK has not made it any cheerier. The Christmas lights that helped make the long, dark evenings a little brighter have now gone and all seems a dull grey. Here at the American Museum our murky winter is being made a little brighter with the promise of our new exhibition Kaffe 2014: The Colourful World of Kaffe Fassett. The exhibition doesn’t open until March but we got a sneaky peak of the delights in store when a model of the exhibition arrived from the designer, Johan Engels. Here are a few pictures that we took. Hopefully they will encourage you to come and see the finished article.
