Where: The Valentine Museum, Richmond VA
When: May 3, 2015-January 31, 2016
“For the inaugural exhibition in the new Nathalie L. Klaus and Reynolds Family Galleries, the Valentine introduces classically inspired treasures from its remarkable collection of costume and textiles. The exhibition explores themes personified by Libertas, Ceres, Virtus, and Aeternitas, the four Roman goddesses that adorn the Virginia state seal, in an examination of the classical forms that endure in Richmond fashion.”
Learn more about the concept and preparation for the show in an interview with curator Kristen Stewart from the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
