An American Look:
Fashion, Decorative Arts
& Gustav Stickley
June 15 — September 22, 2013
An American Look is a unique exhibition that, for the first time, examines the influence of an Arts & Crafts aesthetic in American fashion during the early 20th century. Color, texture and motif were all adapted from the Arts & Crafts elements of furniture, ceramics and other furnishings of the period for upper-class fashion. Clothing styles of 1910-1914 are particularly representative of the elegant simplicity of Arts and Crafts objects popular in the preceding decade. An American Look includes 34 examples from the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection housed at Syracuse University, along with ceramics, Stickley furniture and other decorative art examples from the Everson's permanent collection.
An American Look: Fashion, Decorative Arts & Gustav Stickley has been co-organized by Jeffrey Mayer and the Everson Museum of Art in collaboration with the Sue Ann Genet Costume Collection, College of Visual and Performing Arts, Syracuse University.
An American Look: Fashion, Decorative Arts &Gustav Stickley celebrates the new partnership between the Everson Museum of Art and the L. and J.G. Stickley Company to renovate and restore the Gustav Stickley House, located at 438 Columbus Avenue in Syracuse, as a historic home and museum operated by the Everson Museum.
An American Look: Fashion, Decorative Arts & Gustav Stickley is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
