Join the Georgia Library Association’s Special Libraries and Information Services Division for a tour of the SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film.
SCAD FASH celebrates fashion as a universal language, garments as important conduits of identity, and film as an immersive and memorable medium. The museum focuses on the future of fashion design, connecting conceptual to historical principles of dress – whether ceremonial, celebratory or casual – and welcomes visitors of all ages to engage with dynamic exhibitions, captivating films, and educationally enriching events.
Participants will experience a private tour led by Christina Frank, Assistant Director of Fashion Exhibitions. We’ll also be joined by SCAD’s Head Librarian, Teresa Burk, to hear about the institution’s library and research services.
The museum’s permanent collection includes pieces from Stephen Burrows, Pierre Cardin, Tom Ford, Diane von Furstenburg, Karl Lagerfeld, Ulyana Sergeenko, and more.
Current, temporary, exhibitions include:
Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design
Academy Award-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter is an expert storyteller who harnesses the power of visual communication to share narratives of culture, race, and politics. Creating costumes for generation-defining films like Black Panther, Selma, and Do the Right Thing, she brings vibrancy, nuance, color, and texture to each of her culture-shifting characters. Carter’s exhibition Afrofuturism in Costume Design at SCAD FASH Museum of Fashion + Film features unforgettable designs from nearly four decades of her career within an Afrofuturistic installation incorporating original artwork by SCAD alum Brandon Sadler, whose murals were prominently featured in Black Panther.
Albert Watson: The Light Behind the Lens
A widely prolific artist, Albert Watson has photographed the most iconic images of our time, merging fashion photography, celebrity portraiture, and fine art. From Andy Warhol to Kate Moss to Hollywood royalty, Watson’s striking photographs have graced more than 100 covers of Vogue worldwide and elite publications such as TIME magazine, Rolling Stone, and Harper’s Bazaar.
