There will be an opening reception April 25 at 6 p.m., which is free and open to the public.
Following the reception, there will be a presentation at 7 p.m. in the Everson’s Hosmer Auditorium on designing costume for film and a film costume show of selected pieces from the private collection of film historian Jim Loperfido, owner of Emerald City Video in Syracuse. Admission for the Film Fashion program is $10. The program is under special coordination from Susan Katz and Phyllis La Vine of La Vine Media and Marketing, Syracuse.
