The History of Leopard Print, an Illustrated Lecture with Jo Weldon
Date: Thursday, January 7th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $10
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn

This lecture is a presentation of HarperCollins author Jo Weldon's years-long research into the history of leopard print! This segment will feature predominantly the past 100 years in the US, with a focus on how leopard print has been worn as people of all genders have had unprecedented opportunities to express themselves through fashion; however, the lineage of the pattern will be traced from the areas where the cats themselves originate, and how it appeared in various pockets of global culture before becoming a fashion print, and how that informs its current significance. It's partly a light-hearted romp through cultural iconography, partly an examination of feminism, civil rights, gender, class, and fashion technology. Attendees will get a sense of the history, depth and meaning in the common things around them. You'll learn how to tell a leopard from a jaguar from a cheetah from an ocelot, and why a black panther isn't.

Jo will also be displaying part of her collection of over 100 years of vintage magazine ads featuring leopard print, and a few choice leopard items from her clothing collection.

Come dressed to kill!

Proceeds from this event will go to fund the development of Jo's Traveling Museum of Leopard Print and the preparation of her related projects. Information will also be provided on the work of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), which tracks the status of vulnerable, threatened and endangered species, how to support them, and how to donate.

Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is canceled.
