We love to celebrate the lives of inspirational women. Today, on what what have been her 92 birthday, we acknowledge the immensley talented but humanly flawed actress and singer Judy Garland.
Garland was born June 10, 1922, in Grand Rapids, Minnesota. She signed a movie contract with MGM at the age of 13. In 1939, she scored one of her greatest on-screen successes with The Wizard of Oz. Nearly 40 years after her tragic death at age 47, Garland continues to maintain a devoted following.
Alright – we are in the final stretch of winter. (We promise!) Only 7 more days ’till it is officially spring. To help you get ready for the season, we are sharing our spring 2014 suggestions – drawing inspiration from Women’s History Month, of course!
We are little obsessed with closets right now. This spring, Professor and Chair of Fashion, and Historic Costume Collection Curator Dr. Connie Korosec will be presenting at our 15th Annual Faculty Lecture Series, “The Best Closet in Cleveland: 30th Anniversary of the Historic Costume Collection.” The College will celebrate fashion thirty years in the making and over 3,500 pieces of 20th Century American fashion, donated by Greater Clevelanders. The lecture (free and open to the public) will be held Tuesday, April 8th at 7PM in the Mullen Little Theater. It’s our very own piece of of women’s history!
