 Senior Curator Gilbert Vicario with Teri Toye  This gallery talk pairs an Art Center curator with a voice of expertise from outside the museum's walls. Each speaker will share their distinct perspective on the works presented in the   Halston and Warhol   exhibition.  Teri Toye, a Des Moines native, was a fashion model and designer’s muse in the 1980s international fashion world. Her celebrity and presence in both the New York art and fashion scenes led to friendships with Halston and Warhol. Toye transitioned from the life of the “it” girl when she moved back to Iowa in 1987. She currently works for the federal government in Environmental Protection and Historic Preservation.
