Join us! Italian Style at the Portland Art Museum


If you’re in Portland, you’ve probably already seen the billboards for the Portland Art Museum’s exhibit on Italian fashion since 1945.

Fellow Portlander Jessica is organizing a meetup of sewing folks to see the exhibit on Saturday, March 21st at 2:30pm. Simply meet outside the museum beforehand, and if you’d like, stick around for a showing of Antonioni’s Le Amiche in the basement of the museum at 4:30.

I recommend buying tickets in advance for the exhibit (and the film if you’d like to do that too).

You can also RSVP on Jessica’s Eventbrite page to give her an idea of how many people are coming. Note that this is just the RSVP that Jessica set up, it is NOT a ticket for the museum or the film.

We hope to see you there!

This exhibit was in in my city recently and it is not to be missed. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it!

I saw this exhibit in Minneapolis in December and it’s fantastic! I kind of wish I could have walked through the exhibit backwards, as all my favorite things were toward the beginning. I also wish I had brought a notebook and pencil to sketch things because photographs were not allowed and there were things I wanted to remember!

Is there a catalog for the exhibit. Can’t come to Portland but would love to see the clothes.
