Program Description:

Program is free but reservations are required. Register at . Shakespeare wrote that “all the world’s a stage, and all the men and women are merely players.” When the stage is the world of politics, clothing – or costume – choices can communicate complicated messages to those paying attention. In this unique brunch and learn event, Howard Vincent Kurtz, George Mason University Professor Emeritus of Theater and former Associate Curator of Costumes and Textiles at Hillwood Estate, Museum & Gardens in Washington D.C., will discuss Dress Codes and Gender Roles in the Political Arena. Formal fashion styles available locally will be presented with commentary by Juli Downs, Manager at Narcissus and Marvin Boatman, CEO at AnotherBoatmanCreation. This program is part of the series complementing the temporary exhibit On the Steps of History: Florida’s Inaugurations.
