Kate Cusack—Zipper Pins
New York artist Kate Cusack is nationally known for her clever and innovative contemporary jewelry made out of zippers. She finds the zipper’s combination of rigid metal teeth and flexible fabric to be the perfect medium in which to create whimsical abstract shapes for brooches and neckpieces. She loves transforming ordinary materials into exceptional pieces of wearable art that create interest and comments. Cusack’s work is exhibited in galleries across the US.
Floral brooches are available in black or red cloth banding with silver or gold zipper teeth. Call the Museum Store at 262.638.8200 for information on additional pieces that are available.
