New York, NY - Cotton Incorporated will be a sponsor of the exhibition “White on White (and a little gray),” on view at the American Folk Art Museum in New York from March 28 - September 17, 2006. The exhibition presents fashionable whitework cotton quilts and bedcovers gorgeously stuffed, embroidered and tufted that represent the classical ideal in American decorative arts.

“Cotton Incorporated remains committed to American designers and students of textiles, fashion and home design who work creatively in cotton,” states Berrye Worsham, President and CEO, Cotton Incorporated “Our sponsorship of the “White on White” exhibition is an extension of our commitment to creativity in cotton, and an opportunity to collaborate with The American Folk Art Museum to honor American artforms.

In conjunction with the “White on White” exhibition, Cotton Incorporated will present a special event, “Beyond White: The Psychology of Color”, a conversation between experts in psychology, fashion and interior design who specialize in the creative use of color. The panel discussion will be followed by questions from the audience. This event will be co-sponsored by the William Alanson White Institute, an internationally renowned, nonprofit psychoanalytic and psychotherapy center that provides clinical services, advanced professional training, and outreach programs to New York City and surrounding communities.
