Several events associated with the Claire McCardell Project were cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Among them was an exhibit of artwork by club members called "Inspired by Claire," intended to be held at Heritage Frederick. Disappointed but not defeated, we moved quickly to Plan B: A virtual exhibit complete with interviews of ten artists and peeks inside their studios. Here's the result. We're guessing you'll find the content even richer and more informative than a typical gallery show!
As the community begins to reopen, look for celebrations and educational opportunities to resume. And of course, begin anticipating a gala unveiling of the Claire statue in 2021!
