We welcome you to enjoy a variety of activities for public audiences, including special exhibitions, programs for children and families, lectures, concerts and films.
Fashion Friday: Check out these leopard-skin bootees by Elsa Schiaparelli in our newest exhibition, “The Surrealists: Works from the Collection.” Part of the designer’s personal wardrobe, the shoes are presented as a part of an ensemble of works by artists and designers associated with or influenced by Surrealism. They were one of Schiaparelli’s favorite pairs of shoes—she was even known to wear them bowling! #TheSurrealistsWoman’s Shoes, winter 1939–40, by Elsa Schiaparelli
