The Charleston Museum’s new fashion exhibition, Fashion Flashback, 1920s-1960s: Five Decades of Style that Changed America will run from January 12 through May 10, 2015 in the Historic Textiles Gallery. This will be a journey back through time with a decade-by-decade look at clothing styles, beginning with an exploration of the hip 1960s and working backward to the swinging 1920s. Women’s and men’s clothing and accessories will be displayed, offering a light-hearted look at fifty years of fashion.
A new Natural History exhibit, From Land to Sea: 35 Million Years of Whale Evolution will run from February 9 through August 10, 2015, in The Charleston Museum’s Lobby gallery. This exhibit will display whale fossils dating as far back at the late Eocene (roughly 35 million years ago) as well as the Oligocene (spanning from 33 to 23 million years ago). This exquisite and internationally renowned collection gives researchers an important look at how whales have evolved from their terrestrial ancestors. Modern whale specimens will also be displayed to show just how much whales have changed through time.
