From Mad Men to Mod Women: Fashion in the 1960s
2nd Floor, Art Hallway Gallery
September 15 – October 25, 2010
Inspired by the current television show Mad Men and the retro '60s fashions we are seeing today, the exhibition features 1960s Saturday Evening Post covers, images from the Library’s circulating picture collection, and magazine fashion spreads. This six-case exhibition is a brief survey of fashion in a decade that saw monumental changes in western culture–in music, fashion, and social roles. It touches on some of the highlights of fashion at the time.
The Art Department has many books on fashion – both circulating and reference copies. Fashion is classed in the call number 391. A section of circulating books on this subject can be found on your left as you walk into the Art Department. If you don’t find what interests you there, please ask one of the reference librarians for help, as there are a number of additional books in the closed reference section.
From September 20th to October 15th, a number of circulating books and DVDs on the subject of fashion will be on display on the back of the desk in the main lobby of Parkway Central.
