Material Dogs!

Calling all fashion hounds! Join us for our annual Late Night birthday party as we celebrate the divas of Jean Paul Gaultier with an evening inspired by Madonna and Lady Gaga.

Tribute to Africa collection, haute couture spring/summer 2005, Jean Paul Gaultier

Visitors will have the chance to participate in a Madonna and Lady Gaga costume contest, experience hat making with local milliner Cassandra MacGregor, watch a Madonna impersonator perform, and enjoy all of the family activities we have to offer. In addition to our usual yoga in the galleries and storytime with our talented storyteller Ann Marie Newman (who will be showcasing some inspiring fashion of her own!), we will have a parade of pooches on the runway as families participate in our design for a dog in the studio!

Artists often inspire one another – fashion designer Jen Paul Gaultier has been inspired by the pop star Lady Gaga and has created many designs for her to wear. Photographer Jessie Freidin is so inspired by the costumes worn by Lady Gaga that he has a series of Polaroid photographs showing dogs dressed in Lady Gaga-esque costumes called The Doggie Gaga Project.

Whether you take your inspiration from images of Jesse Freidin’s Doggie Gaga Project photographs, fashions in the Jean Paul Gaultier exhibition, fashion from works in the Museum’s collection, or even from people you see every day, Late Night Creations on Friday night is your chance to create a mini outfit based on your own unique designs!

What a colorful canine!

We will supply the mini dogs, fabric (do I smell bacon-print fabric?), markers, glue, and everything else a Fido fashion designer needs – and you can create a doggone fun outfit for your dog to wear. Be sure that your dog has a chance to trot on the runway!

Such a pretty puppy!

Join us in the studio during Late Night on January 20 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m. for a howling good time!
