Throughout his award-winning career, Oscar de la Renta (1932–2014) designed beautiful clothes for every occasion in a woman’s life. The exhibition The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta highlights recurring themes in de la Renta’s work and offers a window into his world through a range of looks, from elegant daywear to resplendent evening gowns.

In these lively concerts presented in the galleries of The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta, Da Camera Young Artists perform iconic 20th-century music that reflects the sophisticated appeal of de la Renta’s fashions while paying tribute to the designer’s passion for flamenco dance and music.

Drop in! This program is free with admission to the exhibition “The Glamour and Romance of Oscar de la Renta.” Camp stools are provided for seating.
