We all assume the Cincinnati Art Museum specializes in art to hang on the wall. But, did you know, the museum also features art that hangs on the human form? Yes, the art museum has a little known exhibit of fashion dating back to the 1880’s in climate-controlled storage. Curator Cynthia Amneus shows us her favorite garment, worn by a French woman in the late 1800’s. But the collection also includes contemporary fashions.
