The other exhibit at the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD) that I wanted DigiDame readers to know about is the American Counterculture show. It will bring a smile to your face if you were a hippie, a flower power child, or just a free spirit in the 1960s and 1970s. The exhibit focuses on handmade fashions that featured sewing, embroidering, quilting, patch-working, and tie-dyeing. 
I forgot how fabulous some of the outfits were during the time of self-sufficiency and self-expression. Those were the days when the country’s focus was beginning to be on racial and gender equality.  Many more folks were spiritual and peaceniks. A growing number of Americans just wanted to get along.

I certainly long for days of harmony right now.
