Behind the Seams: Ugly Clothes

Sold Out!


Saturday May 13


1:00 PM  –  2:00 PM

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder! The aesthetics of fashion are constantly changing and with it our perception of what looks good. Join Curator of Collections, Clara Berg, for an intimate in-person, one-hour session to view the historic fashions in MOHAI’s collection which were once stylish but don’t translate well to our modern eyes. What do you think—is it fabulous or frightful?

Your ticket includes full access to the museum. Come early or stay after to view all of the textiles and historic garments on display.

CART captioning is available during the program. For additional accessibility support, please email two weeks before the program.
