Ruth E. Carter: Afrofuturism in Costume Design Exhibition

A new special exhibition is opening May 11 at Jamestown Settlement, featuring the works of two-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Ruth E. Carter. Carter has created powerful pieces for acclaimed films and television such as “Yellowstone,” “Roots,” “Amistad,” “Malcom X,” “Selma,” “Do the Right Thing” and “Black Panther.” The special exhibition also showcases the work of Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation historical tailors who dress interpreters depicting people living in early America, some based on period portraits and surviving garments on display in the museum’s gallery exhibits.

The traveling exhibit, organized by Ruth Carter Costume Design and curated by Julia Long, will be on display for six months through December 1. This exhibit is part of admission. Learn more
