NOMA: A QUEEN WITHIN: ADORNED ACHETYPES

Experimental gowns, headpieces, and jewelry by avant-garde fashion designers Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Gypsy Sport, and Iris van Herpen investigate symbols of womanhood and challenge conventional notions of beauty. More than 100 articles of daring fashion are presented in a dramatic gallery design that explores eight archetypal personality types, including Sage, Magician, Enchantress, Explorer, Mother Earth, Heroine, and Thespian.

Join your friends for lunch at Cafe' NOMA in the museum at noon, then enjoy this new exhibit with the guidance of a docent. Museum entrance is free for Louisiana residents on Wednesday. Lunch is on you. RSVP by Monday, May 21 to Rachel Ruth at 897-0143 x161 or rachel@nojcc.org.
