Fans of HBO's Boardwalk Empire (ourselves included) know that, on occasion, the sparkly spectacle of 1920s style rivals the intricate, gangster-studded storylines. Sometimes we'd rather focus on the clothes, rather than Nucky's latest setback or Gillian Darmody's endless creepiness. Serendipitously, the show's costume designer John Dunn will discuss Roaring '20s fashion at Phoenix Art Museum, along with Doris Raymond, who owns L.A.'s The Way We Wore, a boutique that lent pieces to the current exhibition "Modern Spirit." Admission to the 7 p.m. talk, which takes place on Wednesday, November 28, is free.
"Prehistory, Personality + Place: Emil W. Haury + the Mogollon Controversy" @ Wrigley Hall
In conjunction with ASU Museum of Anthropology exhibit "Digging Arizona," this lecture from archaeologists Jefferson Reid and Stephanie Whittlesey explores the discovery and eventual preservation of Mogollon culture. The talk takes place on Thursday, November 28, at 6 p.m. at ASU Tempe's Wrigley Hall in room SHESC 340. Admission is free.
