Trip: Peabody Essex Museum to see the exhibit: Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love
July 11 @ 10:00 am
The bus departs at 10:00 am for a trip to the Peabody Essex Museum to see the exhibit: Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love. This exhibit celebrates the career and legacy of fashion designer Patrick Kelly (born in Vicksburg, Mississippi, 1954–1990). Based in Paris from 1979, Kelly was primarily self-taught and fearlessly drew inspiration from his experiences growing up in the American South, his Black heritage, his days in the New York and Paris club scenes, and his personal muses. His light-hearted and sophisticated designs pushed racial and cultural boundaries, asserted Black empowerment, and were rooted in expressions of love and joy. Approximate return: 3:00 pm. Fee: $38 for transportation and admission. Lunch is on your own at the museum’s Atrium Café. Sign up at the Front Desk under “Trips.”
