Tour of ROM’s Viva Mexico exhibition
For our second outing in our anniversary year, our Stalwart Secretary, Dawna Pym, has arranged for the CSO members to have a special tour of the ROM exhibit: Viva Mexico, Clothing and Culture. Our intrepid Dawna will conduct the guided tour which has been arranged for Saturday, February 27 at 11:00 a.m. The cost is $ 21.50 per person for members and we’re following the tour up with an optional lunch gathering with ‘real’ Mexican food.
There is an entire gallery dedicated to Mexican textiles, with many items never seen before. “The exhibit displays pieces with remarkable technical skill and exquisite artistry”. Items reflect historic and contemporary elements. There are costume ensembles, serapes, rebozos, textiles, embroidery, beadwork and lots more to intrigue and educate. To register for this event and to get more details email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to put your name on the list or to get further information as it becomes available.
