Pardon our dust while we update this corner of the website.


Visiting an exhibition in person is a much richer experience than visiting online. Read the impressions of others, and questions asked for curator Dilys Blum.

What a brilliant idea -- CLOTHES YOU CANNOT WEAR!

Brought family ages 54 to 8 and even the 10 year old son marveled! Great exhibition!

Fantastic!!! You are a genius, Mr. Capucci. My mother particularly enjoyed seeing the earlier pieces; it reminded her of the fashion she wore in the 50's.
Ms Blum,
Mentioned several times on the audio is the weight of the dresses, particularly the later pieces. Could you give me an idea as to the weight, for example, of the second to last piece on display(white w/gold and turquoise).

The dresses and the subsequent pieces were tres bon! HOWEVER, what continually irked me throughout the exhibit was the unfair banning of all photography (and lack of seating). How else am I supposed to share these magnificent works without capturing them using photography?? Am I supposed to use Google Images?? It continually angered me, like a malevolent cancer!!! Get over yourselves! Also, my zipper was 10 feet away from the dresses!!!

This was the absolute best exhibit that I have seen in some time! It truly incorporated color, nature, form, imagination and brought them altogether! I "smiled" while waking through the entire exhibit! Thank Mr. Capucci and to the Philadelphia Art Museum for sharing this exhibit! It was magical!

Where have I been that I have never heard of this masterful designer!? I absolutely loved this exhibit, and I thank you for bringing Roberto Capucci and his incredibly creative visions made into fashion to the people of Philadelphia and to all who visit our marvelous Museum of Art. Bellissima!!!!!!!

I conducted an unscientific survey asking women spectators if they would wear any of The Capucci dresses. The overwhelming majority of women said "No!" I for one, being a rotund man, would.

THE EXHIBITS COLORS AND TEXTILES WERE ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. CAPUCCI'S FASHIONS WERE AMAZING PIECES OF LIVING ART. THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE PMA STAFF FOR MAKING THIS EXHIBIT POSSIBLE.
