This photograph was taken by Mr. Piotrowski in 2007 with modern models.
This Hennepin History Museum exhibition looks at the relationship between the HHM collections and Minneapolis artist Timothy G. Piotrowski. Piotrowski uniquely interprets and photographs HHMíS luscious costume collections on living models against a back-drop of vintage furniture, art objects, and historic locations for a collection of stunning images.
This exhibition exemplifies a rare opportunity for an artist to have access to working hands on with a museumís collection. This is both an historic event and an assemblage of art; each party has received something valuable in this exchange.
This exhibition has been featured on WCCO TV and on Minnesota Public Radio.
