Ingersoll, Joanne Dolan, editor
Cocktail Culture: Ritual and Invention in American Fashion, 1920-1980

The exhibition traces the shifting shapes, materials, and embellishments of cocktail-inspired attire and barware, highlighting their elegance and inventiveness with an eye to the rapid social changes that shaped their design. Exhibition held at Museum of Art, Rhode Island School of Design, April 15 to July 31, 2011.
