Join SHSMO as we officially open an exciting exhibition showcasing the glamour of Hollywood and Missouri native Ginger Rogers, who graced the stage and screen as a much beloved performer. A collection of costumes originally worn by Rogers will be on display in the SHSMO Art Gallery April through August 2024. The exhibition is in collaboration with the University of Missouri’s Department of Textile and Apparel Management. Learn how the actor and entertainer from Independence, Missouri, inspired contemporary apparel design by students in the Department of Textile and Apparel Management. SHSMO Art curator Joan Stack will be available at the opening reception to tell how this unique collection came together for display.
