New backdrops completed for the Museum Store exhibit windows
The new backdrops that flank the entrance to the Museum Store were completed by Luke Hembree. The inspiration was to make these exhibit windows look like an old-fashioned department store display from the Art Deco era. On view are three-dimensional models created after Erte's two-dimensional fashion designs. Erte's designs were extremely daring for the time. Also, on view are Art Deco clocks from the Hammond Clock Company, pictured is the Gregory and the Junior clock.
