“The Fenimore Art Museum and the Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, NY has an extensive, intriguing, and somewhat undocumented clothing/costume/fashion collection.  The Clothing Project is one Curatorial Fellow’s journey into this collection.”

Mary Alexander, Curatorial Fellow at the Fenimore Art Museum and Farmers’ Museum in Cooperstown, New York has been documenting the institution’s clothing collection on tumblr with wit and style. Her impressive photographs of the collection alongside her entertaining and informative descriptions have made for a collections-centered tumblr that has gained a significant following in a matter of only a few months.
