Beaded and fringed flapper dress

Flapper Style: 1920s Fashion

Friday, September 25, 2015 (All day) to Sunday, September 4, 2016 (All day)

Broadbent Gallery | Sara Hume, Curator The flapper is widely seen as the epitome of 1920s glamor and decadence. The term refers to the generation of young women who came to age just as World War I ended and shocked the older generation with their short hair and short skirts, their drinking and smoking and swearing. Flappers faced a world strikingly different from the one their mothers knew and their clothing reflected this dramatic break with the past.

Stager and Blum Galleries | Curators: Koon Hwee Kan and Janice Lessman-Moss We initiated this project as a celebration of more than three decades of diplomatic ties between the United States of America and the People’s Republic of China. This exchange exhibit serves as an experimental channel for direct connections among contemporary studio faculty members in both cultures. Gravitating toward uniqueness is typical in new artistic creation and cultural expression, which may inadvertently overemphasize contradictory outcomes stemming from differences.

Higbee Gallery | Sara Hume, Curator The art of creating beautiful custom clothing has always entailed beautiful workmanship that is hidden when the pieces are worn. This exhibition showcases these secret inner-workings that are usually out of sight. Weights, pockets, quilted linings, boning, ruffles and labels all come to light when the garments are flipped inside out. 

Geoffrey Beene

GEOFFREY BEENE: AMERICAN INGENUITY

Thursday, January 29, 2015 (All day) to Sunday, August 30, 2015 (All day)

Broadbent Gallery | Jean Druesedow, Director American designer Geoffrey Beene (1927–2004) was respected throughout the American fashion industry for the high technical quality of his work and his innovative, modernist designs. Although very fashionable, Mr. Beene’s collections were never trendy and always original. He took an artist’s approach to turning two-dimensional fabric into a three-dimensional shape for the body and was considered a designer’s designer. Garments from the Museum’s collection will trace his 40-year career.
