We were most excited about seeing the gorgeous Art Deco sculptures, furniture and tea services belonging to the private collection of Bernard and Sylvia Ostry. If we had infinite space and money, we would dedicate an entire room to Deco art.
Finally in the Fabrics section, the exhibit "Riotous Colour, Daring Patterns: Fashions + Textiles 18th to 21st Centuries" is in its last days. Experimental dresses made of durable paper with bold prints were on display. Also shown were fabrics with unusual designs such as 'Lil Abner cartoons, reproductions of famous tapestries and a zebra-striped suit that seemed to be designed for Starsky and Hutch's Huggy Bear.
