Mad Hatters: New York Hats and Hatmakers
May 19 – July 31, 2016
September 8 – mid October 2016
Please note that City Lore Gallery will be closed from August 1 – September 7, 2016.
Mixing fashion, craft and culture, Mad Hatters showcases the identities that New Yorkers carve out for themselves by donning a simple piece of headwear in a crowded city. Showcasing both the everyday hats of NYC, as well as the artistic creations of the master milliners in the city, the exhibit celebrates “New York hat-itude.”
Gallery Hours resuming September 8th:
Thurs – Fri 2 – 6pm
Sat – Sun 12 – 6pm
and by appointment
To schedule a visit outside of normal hours, please email Abby at firstname.lastname@example.org.
