Just a few bits and pieces:
The Mark Twain House (Hatford, CT) currently has an exhibit called, “Modesty Died When Clothes Were Born: Costume in the Life and Literature of Mark Twain.” There’s some nice info on their website, plus a catalog of the exhibit is available for $18.95 from the museum website
The Huntsville Museum of Art (Hunstville, AL) will be opening an exhibit called, “Fashion in Film: Period Costumes for the Screen” on 11/7. Check out their exhibit webpage for images of costumes from Out of Africa, Dangerious Liaisons, Onegin, Pride and Prejudice, Jefferson in Paris, The Europeans, Scarlett, Shining Through and The Shooting Party (make sure you click on “Click for more previews”).
Opening tomorrow (11/2): “High Style and Hoopskirts: The 1850s” at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts.
Finally, right here in San Francisco — “Glamour: Fashion, Industrial Design, and Architecture” at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Apparently the exhibit covers 1945-present — I’ll report more once I’ve seen it! You can purchase the catalog for $45 from their online museum store.
