Fashion in Art Through the Ages

Join fashion historian and art muse Sara Stevens as she explores LACMA’s collection through the lens of costume to consider issues of gender, society, and history through the ages. We’ll look at art from the museum's encyclopedic collection where garments offer insights to the wearer's life and learn some fashion terminology in the process.

This may be your last chance to see LACMA's permanent collection installed in the Ahmanson galleries as the museum incrementally deinstalls in preparation for the new building. Don't miss this opportunity!

About Sara Stevens: Sara was an educator at the Skirball Cultural Center, and is now an adjunct professor at Woodbury University. Sara holds a BA from the University of California, Berkeley in the History of Art and a MS in Apparel Merchandising from California State University, Northridge.
