There was a healthy crowd at the Paine, probably among their largest. Most of the costumes were show in the rooms as illustrated in the pictures below, taken from various websites, as they allowed no interior photography.
In all, 36 costumes are seen from DA’s first four seasons, all made by Cosprop Ltd. with under the sponsorship of the program producers and local underwriters.
Even though it was unusually hot for Wisconsin, We wandered a bit in the garden, only slightly wilted by the heat. Both the blooms and the people! I snapped a few photos of the house and grounds.
I regret that I waited so late in the Wisconsin showing of this exhibition as I would have preferred to see it several times and now I won’t have time to go back before it ends on September 20, 2015. It had previously been shown at Winterthur in Delaware and at the Biltmore Mansion in North Carolina. Below is the upcoming schedule, so if there is a venue near you, you can share in the opportunity.
