This season’s exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, sponsored by Gap along with support by Condé Nast, is inspired by the American Woman: Fashioning a National Identity running from today, May 5th through August 15th focusing on how the modern American woman between the 1890’s and 1940’s has affected women today.
