The Design Collaborative invites the Philadelphia area design community to join the conversation, collaborate and share their personal insights into collecting design and art in today’s marketplace. This week we were lucky to have Meredith Hilferty come through the exhibition and curate a selection of her top 10 favorite pieces. “The Design Collaborative is a unique opportunity to see how works that span different collections can work together in harmony.” says Hilferty. “It’s a visual conversation that inspires the collector in all of us.” Meredith started her career working on appraisals in the Philadelphia area, and serves as Director of Fine Art Auctions at the Rago Arts and Auctions Center since 2006. Catch her on the PBS program Antiques Roadshow.
