On Saturday night, the FIDM Museum ushered in our Outstanding Art of Television Costume Design exhibition! Thanks to the multitude of platforms available for television viewing and the rich variety of content produced, costume designers have more opportunity than ever to create unique, nuanced designs for the small screen. Indeed, as our exhibition entrance declares, it is truly “The New Golden Age” of television costume design, and as always we are proud to provide a space to study and celebrate this important work. Take a look inside the 11th annual opening night below; the exhibition is open from August 22 until October 7, Tuesday – Saturday, 10 am – 5 pm. Remember, admission is always free!
Guests enjoyed a festive outdoor party to celebrate the exhibition opening.
