Closing reception 3-5:30 p.m. Thu., Sep. 12.
The Goldstein Museum of Design, the little museum with a collection larger than that of the Weisman Art Museum and the Walker Art Center combined, once again delves into its treasure trove with an exhibition that focuses on women and fashion in the mid-20th century, exploring how clothing reflected societal mores of the time, innovations in fabric and pattern, and what women wore during Second Wave Feminism. Literature from the University of Minnesota archives lends gravitas, as if any were needed. Think pantsuits and platforms, femininity and androgyny, homemakers and working women. Dior’s “New Look” didn’t stand a chance.
