From Rituals to Runways: The Art of the Bead Open Now Through May 10
If you don’t have tickets for Cher’s Cincinnati concert on April 7 (or even if you do!) you can still get an up-close look at some of the music icon’s glittering and glamorous costumes at Behringer-Crawford Museum.
Four of Cher’s dazzling beaded outfits are on display as part of the museum’s newest exhibit, “From Rituals to Runways: The Art of the Bead.” The costumes, mostly created through the Tambour beading process, were designed by celebrity Hollywood designer Bob Mackie and worn by the star for the Sonny & Cher TV show and concerts during the 1970s.
The exhibit celebrates the art and integral roles that beads have played in society over the centuries, from prayer and devotion, to art, fashion and décor. They’ve been made from wood and stone, bone and tooth, glass, plastic and gemstones – all of which are represented in the exhibit, which runs through May 10.
