Opening Reception for Boardwalk Renaissance
May 19, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Mixing fashion, craft and culture, Mad Hatters showcases the identities that New Yorkers carve out for themselves by donning a simple piece of headware in a crowded city. The exhibit pays special attention to the City’s grassroots cultures and the role that hats and other headware play in preserving and announcing cultural identities. Showcasing both the everyday hats of NYC, as well as the artistic (and gravity defying) creations of the community of master milliners in the city, the exhibit celebrates “New York hat-itude.”
