The Art of Accessories
CategoryArtifacts, Current Exhibits
Open November 4, 2017 – February 11, 2018
An original exhibition featuring beaded bags, decorated shoes, fanciful hats, and gorgeous jewelry. Accessories can be overshadowed by the complete ensemble, but this exhibition showcases beautiful, often quirky items that shine as they take center stage.
In addition to artifacts from the NCSML collection, the exhibition also will include 22 pins on loan from the collection of former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright. A popular 2013 traveling exhibition at the NCSML, Read My Pins: The Madeleine Albright Collection, featured more than 280 pins that Madeleine Albright wore in her role as Secretary of State.
