SECRETARY ALBRIGHT SPEAKS ON DAVIS EXHIBITION

06/18/14

R+L's recently completed exhibition design for the Davis Museum at Wellesley College is in the news this week. The Boston Globe reports that "While former secretary of state Hillary Clinton signed copies of her new book, “Hard Choices,” at the Harvard Book Store on Monday, one of her predecessors (and the first woman to hold that office), Madeleine Albright was at Wellesley College, the alma mater of both women, and scheduled to sign copies of her own book, Read My Pins." Astrid Lipka and Lyn Rice were on hand Monday evening for Albright's public dialogue with Wellesley president Kim Bottomly, where she lauded R+L's lucent display design for the exhibition of the same name. Read My Pins, which documents her deft use of pins as diplomatic tools, is open through July 20. Photo © Suzanne Kreiter-Boston Globe. MORE >
