Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road On View July 14 -November 5, 2017
The Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU presents a new exhibition titled Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road. The exhibit includes 33 handcrafted hats, photos and letters that illustrate the colorful story of Irene Williams who lived and worked on Miami Beach from the 1960’s until her death in 2004.
Every workday for more than 40 years, Irene Williams dressed in one of her vibrant fashions from a collection of more than 100 handmade hats and outfits, and walked to her small office on Lincoln Road where she worked as a public stenographer. One morning in 1995, Irene was spotted by Eric Smith, a New York City designer, entrepreneur, and founder of E.G. Smith Socks. A friendship ensued and over the next decade, Eric documented Irene on film and produced an award winning documentary titled Irene Williams Queen of Lincoln Road. When Irene died in 2004, she left her colorful collection of hats, photos and letters to Smith which are included in the exhibit. In addition to the Irene Williams Collection, the exhibition will include hats and photos on loan from Isabel Bernfeld Anderson and George Neary. Exhibition Sponsor: Robert Arthur Segall Family Foundation, Danny & Merle Weiss, Isabel Bernfeld Anderson, Pauline Winick.
After spending over 40 years working as a Financial Engineer on Wall Street, Neil Dern turned to photography to offset his feelings from the terrorist attack of 9/11. He was not only a casual survivor to the attack, but also a visual researcher of the event and it’s aftermath.
Dern left Wall Street after 9/11, and has devoted his interest to photography since that horrific day. "In my work, I have tried to show the beauty of the surroundings in its natural settings."
His work has been exhibited at ArtMedia Gallery in Wynwood, Cleveland Clinic Foundation and in several private collections.
