Sportswear Exhibit and Symposium

080402-2.jpg

To go along with Heather’s book review post part 1 in which she mentioned Pat Warner, I thought I’d let you know that the museum I work at, the Goldstein Museum of Design, has an upcoming exhibit entitled From Sportswear to Streetwear: American Innovation, and for that exhibit there will be a related symposium October 10 at which Pat Warner will be the keynote speaker. The symposium is open to the public and accompanies a weekend class being taught by Warner on sportswear on at the University of Minnesota-which is open to anyone to take.

If you missed Heather’s post, Warner wrote the book When the Girls Came out to Play: The Birth of American Sportswear. The exhibit will feature items from the Goldstein’s collection including designers and brands such as Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Lilly Pulitzer, Valentino, Converse, and Juicy Couture. The dates of the exhibit are August 15-November 2. Click here for more details.
