This exhibition for the Jazz and Fashion: STYLE, TASTE & CLASS (Series) is entitled “Dressed to the Nines”. The fashion show and the art encompasses the idea of The ORIGINAL Cotton Club in the 1920’s and the entertainers and dancers that made it famous.
The fashion being presented in art, focuses on the actual costumes of the Cotton Clubs’ dancers and performers and the fact that the club was ACTUALLY a WHITES ONLY VENUE (patrons) that was serviced by people of color.
Join us this Friday, February 9th at 6pm for an open viewing of “Dressed to the Nines” by our Artist-in-Residence, Al-Karim Powell-Darensburg, followed by a fashion show at 8pm featuring music from the legendary Chris Washington.
