Join the Jewish Museum of Florida-FIU on Thursday, July 13 at 7 p.m. for the VIP Exhibit Opening of Irene Williams: Queen of Lincoln Road with Filmmaker Eric Smith. One morning in 1995, Irene Williams was spotted by Eric Smith, a New York City designer, entrepreneur, and founder of E.G. Smith Socks. A friendship ensued and over the next decade, Smith documented Irene’s colorful life on film and produced an award-winning documentary “Irene Williams Queen of Lincoln Road.” When Irene died in 2004, she left her colorful collection of hats, photos, and letters to Smith which are included in the exhibit. Admission is free but reservations are required. On view through November 5.
