"Collecting Midcentury Modern Textiles"

Chances are you’ve never heard of Jacqueline Groag. That is, unless you’re super into textiles and design. Groag was a Czech-born fabric designer who moved to England with her architect husband in 1939. After World War II ended, Groag’s designs and textiles acted as an uplifting light in the British fashion scene. The bright colors and playful patterns make it easy to see why and to see elements within her pieces are still used today. Join Kirk Brown, fashion collector and biographer, on Saturday, April 11, at 3 p.m. at at the Phoenix Art Museum, 1625 North Central Avenue, as he discusses Groag and her unique work in Collecting Midcentury Modern Textiles. Tickets are $5 and can be purchased at Visit for more information.
