The Memorial Art Gallery in Rochester, New York is featuring forty different ensembles from the Ebony Fashion Fair, from the 1960s through the 2000s. This traveling celebration of fashion, created by Eunice Johnson of Johnson Publishing, raised millions of dollars for African American charities. According to the Memorial Art Gallery’s web site, this is the exhibition’s only stop in the northeastern US. The exhibit runs from January 31–April 24, 2016 at the MAG.
