Good news for fans of Motown music, show stopping fashion, African-American history and American pop culture: Come See About Me: The Mary Wilson Supremes Collection has been extended at the African American Museum in Philadelphia through Sunday, August 18.
Originally slated to close on June 30, the popular exhibit will now be open for seven additional weeks.
The memorabilia on display primarily includes gowns worn by Mary Wilson and the ladies of pioneering Motown group The Supremes — more than 30 gowns in all, some of weigh in at 30 pounds due to the rhinestones and pearls dripping from the fabric.
In addition to the costumes, the exhibit includes album covers, historic photographs, rarely seen video footage and more.
Together, these remarkable items celebrate the glitz, glamour, sights, sounds and social impact of the iconic Motown trio.
Be sure to stop (in the name of love) in to see this exciting exhibit before it’s gone.
