Thrifty vintage : Dress your life
I am one of those naughty museum and art gallery visitors who wants to touch the exhibits. It isn’t an intentional breaking of the rules, but I find that my right hand has a mind of its own.
I’ve been scolded at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth (I accidentally brushed against some free-hanging silverware) and by a museum-trained friend while walking through Biltmore. As I become less far sighted, I fear that the 12-inch rule for looking at art will become harder and harder to follow.
One show that could be extremely trying for me is the Cincinnati Art Museum’s Behind the Seams clothing conservation exhibit. It has a few “touchable objects,” though, which could help visitors with tactile tendencies.
Here is exhibit coverage from Cincinnati.com. The show runs through April.
Work has been busy, so I’ve fallen behind in my news posting. Here are a few gems you may have missed over the past month. There has been a lot going on in the vintage clothing world! Enjoy.
Happy reading & watching,
