The meteoric rise and remarkable achievements of a 1980s fashion legend will be explored in “Patrick Kelly: Runway of Love.” Kelly’s clothing was worn by women of every age, from actress Bette Davis to Vanessa Williams, and his enduring relevance today is seen in contemporary streetwear brand Gerlan Jeans, showcasing vibrant prints and bold embellishments. The exhibit opens April 27 and runs through Nov. 30.
