BODY FASHION TO HANDBAG FASHION
The New York Historical Society welcomes us to a very interesting docent-led tour of 300 years of the craft and art of the tattoo in New York City. From Native Americans to sailors in colonial New York to the 30-year ban on tattooing in the 20th century, we will experience where history and pop culture converge. More than 250 images and objects including Thomas Edison’s electric pen will be shown. After your tour be sure to see Picasso’s ultra creative stage curtain from the 1919 performance of the Ballet Russes “Le Tricorne”. We will have lunch on our own at the lovely Caffe Storico in the New York Historical Society or a restaurant of your choice. Our next visit will be to the Museum of Art and Design to view the first-time exhibition of Judith Leiber’s creations. This not-to-miss collection will be docent-guided. We hope everyone will also take time for the exhibition titled, “Counter Couture”, or alternative fashion, an array of embroidery, crochet and other handwork displayed to remind us of these often neglected creative works of fashion art and design.
Cost includes transportation, entrance fees, guided tours, snacks and gratuities.
