BOULDER, CO: The Pavlova Project," An Exhibition About Ballerina Anna Pavlova
The Pavlova Project
The exhibit explores the life and art of one of the 20th century's most inspiring women, ballerina Anna Pavlova (1881 - 1931), through re-creations of her costumes and couture; the originals lost or disintegrated. This meticulously reconstructed wardrobe has been crafted in one-quarter scale by Boulder artist Peggy Turchette using original photographs, drawings, paintings, film footage, and written description. Over eighty-five individual outfits will be displayed on 16 " mannequins, arranged in a highly original display. Anna Pavlova's story is compelling on many levels. From a humble background in Imperial Russia, she became the most famous ballerina of her day.
