Exhibition: Worn to be Wild: The Black Leather Jacket
Venue: Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk VA
Date: October 3, 2014 – January 4, 2015
“The Chrysler’s keynote exhibition for fall 2014 is a travellng blockbuster dedicated to the ultimate American sartorial statement: the black leather jacket.
From its humble beginnings as protective road gear for bikers and flight wear for military aviators, from its de facto revolutionary uniform for rebels with and without a cause, from rockers who moved the jacket off the motorcycle and onto the stage, and finally, to the must-wear runway accessory of the 1980s and beyond.”
