Hidden Gems: Fashioning A Legacy
A Pearl S. Buck Fashion Exhibit

March 15-May 31, 2024

Precious Gem The Fashions Of Pearl S. Buck
This exhibit will showcase the best representations of Pearl Buck’s personal style through her intact collection of American and Asian fashion, jewelry, shoes, handbags, hand fans, gloves, and associated archival material. A woman well ahead of her time, Ms. Buck had a distinctive style. She had the opportunity to live in two very different cultures and carefully chose clothing and accessories to represent the two halves of herself and her life. The fashions exhibited will also be used as the vehicle to tell the story of Pearl S. Buck International’s work and impact since 1964.
Join us for the first special exhibition of Pearl S. Buck’s 20th century fashion in celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the foundation she began that would and continues to change the lives of millions around the world.
