Exhibits!


VESTED INTEREST
Through September 6 at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan, WI. This exhibit comprises the works of 17 contemporary artists who use dress to investigate issues of significant personal importance. Historical examples of adornment convey messages that offer an expanded context for understanding the social dimension of dress. Several contemporary artists play on the idea that adornment can reveal personal opinions in a very public way. Click here for details


READY TO TEAR: FASHIONS FROM THE 1960s
Through September 7 at Peterborough Centennial Museum and Archives in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada. This display features a collection of paper dresses that were a fad in the 1960s, as well as other artifacts. The question of throwaway fashion was in stark contrast to the recycling movement that also started around the same time. While some parts of the display reflect what was going on in the world at the time, there is also a timeline pinpointing local events. Click here for details
