Yesterday was delightful! We had planned to go to the parade in Philly but as it turned out, we watched in television and the internet, and undoubtedly had a much better view of the event in it's entirety. Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles for their first ever Super Bowl win and the incomparable follow up celebration. Watching the season was a gift!
Last evening we attended two events at Towson University. One was a lecture by an artist who is currently displaying her innovative creations at the Baltimore Museum of Art. The other was a reception for Inside Out, to open a new exhibit that will be on display until mid March. It is a perfect compliment to the Marc Jacob's course I'm taking where he gives an in-depth perspective on how undergarments impact fashion.

OPENING RECEPTION FEBRUARY 8, 2018
This exhibition celebrates Towson’s extensive historical clothing collection, with a focus on the century betwen 1820-1920. Visitors get a behind the scenes look at the clothing we so often see in old photos and ads. From the most private of undergarments and hidden tricks of the trade to the outfits and accompanying outerwear, we answer the question, "How DID they wear that?"
"My mission is
to help others see and cherish the beauty,
romance and treasures within and around them
that are often dismissed or completely overlooked."
