Can you dress in Chopin's music? Yes, indeed, you can. Monique Lehman, a world-famous tapestry artist just won a prize at the 7th International Exhibition of "Wearable Expressions" created a Chopin Cape that can now be seen at the Palos Verdes Art Center. The "Wearable Art" consists of an amazingly imaginative display of one-of -a-kind gowns, hats,jewelry and all sorts of capes, and costumes. The exhibition features two wonderful pieces by Monique Lehman, including this prize-winning Chopin Cape.
I found Chopin's profile hidden between twisted staff lines dancing on the surface of this delicate, pastel composition. The other side had some music notes, and more twists to the five-lines of the staves.
