Celebrating Bill Cunningham – N.Y. Historical Society Exhibit. June 08 - September 09, 2018
“Celebrating Bill Cunningham”. The exhibit is running this summer from June 8- September 9, 2018. The opening was incredible. I am so honored that my song “Tonight Josephine” sang by Pat Cleveland is being featured in the museum retrospective exhibit on this great New York Times Iconic Photographer The Late Bill Cunningham........Maurice Lynch
Celebrating Bill Cunningham marks the New-York Historical Society’s recent acquisition of objects, personal correspondence, ephemera, and photographs that reflect the life and work of Bill Cunningham, one of the late 20th century’s most influential trend-spotters and style authorities. The legendary New York Times journalist and photographer was frequently spied on the city’s streets, at fashion shows, and elegant soirées capturing New York’s fashion innovators and cultural glitterati. Showcasing a selection from Cunningham’s Facades project―his eight-year photographic project documenting New York City’s architectural and fashion history, shown at the Museum in 2014―Celebrating Bill Cunningham also features photographs documenting his friendship with floral designer Toni Cimino, known as Suzette; a Cunningham bicycle; his Nikon camera; signature blue jacket; ephemera; and unforgettable William J hats. Curated by Debra Schmidt Bach, curator of decorative arts.
Generous support for this exhibition provided by May and Samuel Rudin Family Foundation, Inc.
The New-York Historical Society would like to extend sincere appreciation to John Kurdewan, who has provided invaluable assistance for our effort to collect items that document and commemorate Bill Cunningham's life. Celebrating Bill Cunningham would not be possible without his insight and support.
