I bring my curatorial experience to the classroom to supervise graduate students as they research and produce exhibitions, such as “Ready to Roar: Women’s Eveningwear In the Prohibition Era” that recently opened at The Mob Museum. Curated using social media, the show features 15 dresses and delivers all the sequins one would expect. Students took theory into practice as they conserved century-old velvet, built mounts, dressed mannequins, and learned there is “real” history underneath the embellishments.

 

Here’s the first-rate website they put together about our process and our extensive research.
