The Boca Raton Museum of Art in Boca Raton is one of the leading cultural institutions in South Florida, and its public programs include artist presentations, family activities, art films, the Annual Art Festival, and more than 100 classes per week at its studio Art School.
This Spring, the museum brings you "IMPACT: 50 Years of the CFDA," the first museum exhibition to celebrate American fashion.
On view from Jan. 29 through April 21, 2013, the exhibit is spearheaded by Council President Diane von Furstenberg, and includes garments and accessories by the most impactful creators of the last 50 years, including Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Carolina Herrera, Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen, Alexander Wang, Norma Kamali, Diane von Furstenberg, Vera Wang and Thom Browne.
The exhibition also includes interactive touch screen displays that illustrate a timeline of American fashion and recognize the nearly 600 designers who have been members of the CFDA over the last five decades. Each living designer selected to participate in the exhibition has chosen a single object or ensemble that best represents his or her impact on the fashion world.
"American designers have always had impact on how people dress," said CFDA President Diane von Furstenberg. "In honor of that creativity and in celebration of the CFDA's 50th anniversary, we are proud to present, in partnership with the Boca Raton Museum of Art, an exhibit that represents the tremendous work of our members for the last five decades."
In addition to the exhibition, the Boca Raton Museum of Art will host a black-tie gala on Jan. 26, 2013, where art and fashion devotees are invited to an elegant evening cocktail of food, fashion, and entertainment. Visit the website for details on the event.
