Brooklyn Talks: The Sartorial Vision of Michelle Obama

September 2 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$30

7–8:30 pm

Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Auditorium, 3rd Floor

From Inauguration Day to her official portrait by Amy Sherald (on view as part of our special exhibition The Obama Portraits Tour), First Lady Michelle Obama powerfully expressed the values and vision of the Obama White House through her sartorial choices. Explore the former First Lady’s culture-shifting style with image strategist Meredith Koop—who has been Michelle Obama’s stylist since 2010, in the White House and for subsequent appearances—and fashion historian Kimberly M. Jenkins, Assistant Professor of Fashion Studies, Ryerson University, and principal researcher for The Fashion and Race Database. The two discuss some of Michelle Obama’s key looks, starting with her official portrait, and explore the intersection between fashion and politics.

Tickets are $30 and include after-hours admission to The Obama Portraits Tour. Member tickets are $20. Not a Member? Join today!

This program will include ASL interpretation. For access needs, please email us at access@brooklynmuseum.org.
