In 2005, Gerson and Judith Leiber built a gallery to house their works of art and to chronicle their careers, offering an unparalleled retrospective of their creations over the past many decades.
The Leiber Collection, a magnificent Renaissance styled Palladian edifice, sits majestically in a sublime sculpture garden that borders six additional gardens, each designed by Gerson Leiber, in a style befitting the local geography. Considered by many to be the best kept secret of the Hamptons, you are in for a real treat as you peruse the exquisite jewel of a museum and explore the charming gardens. When visiting the East End of Long Island it’s worth spending a few hours visit the garden and the museum.
The Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), in New York City, will host a major exhibition of Judith Leiber handbags from April 4 to August 27, 2017. MAD is highly regarded for its superb display and interpretation of contemporary and historic innovative art and design. The Museum is located at 2 Columbus Circle in Manhattan. Its website is www.madmuseum.org
