SEE: DRAPED DOWN AT THE STUDIO MUSEUM

Draped Down exhibit at the Studio Museum in Harlem, 144 West 125th Street, starting Wednesday March 27th.  Draped Down looks at both the implicit and explicit references to fashion in visual art. The title is adapted from a renaissance-era slang term meaning well-dressed; to be in the height of Harlem fashion. The term “draped down” was culled from a short story that the novelist and cultural anthropologist Zora Neale Hurston published in 1942.  More on this exhibit at the Studio Museum in Harlem site: LINK
