I was thrilled to receive this information from The Jewish Museum about Isaac Mizrahi Family Day! I had to share so if you are in the city, you can add this to your "things to do" list. This is a most wonderful exhibit, and it looks like they will have some fun activities on this day.
SELF-GUIDED FAMILY EXHIBITION TOURS
Specialized printed family gallery guides for Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History will be available for free.
The Jewish Museum is presenting the first exhibition focused on Isaac Mizrahi, the influential American fashion designer, artist, and entrepreneur, until August 7, 2016. Through over 250 works, including clothing and costume designs, sketches, photographs, and an immersive video installation, this survey exhibition explores Mizrahi’s unique position at the intersection of high style and popular culture. While best known for his work in fashion, Mizrahi’s creativity has expanded over a three decade career to embrace acting, directing, set and costume design, writing, and cabaret performance. Beginning with his first collection in 1987 and running through the present day, Isaac Mizrahi: An Unruly History weaves together the many threads of Mizrahi's prolific output, juxtaposing work in fashion, film, television, and the performing arts.
Isaac Mizrahi Family Day is made possible through the generosity of New York City Councilmember Daniel R. Garodnick. Additional support is provided through public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs.
The Edgar M. Bronfman Center for Education’s school and family programs are supported by endowed funds established by the Bronfman Family, the Muriel and William Rand Fund, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, the Helena Rubinstein Foundation, Rosalie Klein Adolf, the Kekst Family, and Mrs. Ida C. Schwartz in memory of Mr. Bernard S. Schwartz.
