Mohawk Group hosts design event on Museum Hill

On October 13, 2016, the principals from twenty of the leading US architecture and design firms visited the basketry, pottery and textile collections at the Museum of Indian Arts & Culture and Museum of International Folk Art, enjoyed cocktails on Museum Hill under a full moon, and enjoyed a sit-down dinner in the museum atrium. The occasion? The Mohawk Group hosted its annual Future Workspace Design event in Santa Fe.

The Georgia-based Mohawk Group is the world’s leading producer and distributor of quality commercial flooring, carpeting and hard surfaces. Every year the company hosts their top clients in a new and inspiring locale to explore emerging trends, and make new connections with architecture and design professionals from around the world.

Over two days, Mohawk’s guests learned about the company’s new product, listened to a variety of trend forecasts, and explored Santa Fe and our museums.

The Licensing Department was thrilled to host Mohawk’s guests and share with them the extraordinary design resource within our museums. The event was a huge success, with essential support from Museum of International Folk Art staff Laura Lovejoy-May, textile curator Carrie Hertz, volunteers Barbara Forsland and Ava Fullerton and Museum of Indian Arts & Culture curators Valerie Verzuh and Cathy Notarnicola.
