Embellished: Adornment Through the Ages – Special Exhibit at the Johnson Humrickhouse Museum

May 28 - September 18

Lace, beads, embroidery buttons…..Join them at the Johnson Humrickhouse Museum this summer to explore a history of embellishments from head to toe across the world. This show features several designer pieces from American designer Bob Mackie, best known for styling many icons such as Carol Burnett, Elton John, Lucille Ball, and Cher just to name a few. Pieces from Johnson Humrickhouse Museum’s own collection spanning centuries and locations from China to our own backyard will emblazon upon fabric the history of fashion adornment and how it’s not so different from the way we embellish today. Clothing items such as the “little black dress” that Audrey Heburn wore in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” designed by French designer Givenchy and the mini-skirt from fashion designer Todd Oldham, a New “Space Age Designer”. The Johnson Humrickhouse Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday every day from Noon to 4 pm until Labor Day. The Johnson Humrickhouse Museum is located at 300 N Whitewoman Street in Historic Roscoe Village in Coshocton.
