Friends got cabaret costumes tour

      Guest curator Karan Feder on April 19 led a behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s textile collection, which features everyday historical wear as well as garments donated by celebrities and show costumes donated by casinos or performers. The tour, focused on performance wear, took place during our April general meeting. Attendees got to view items not currently on public display.
