On Saturday, March 31, the Young Patrons’ Circle (YPC) hosted the seventh annual PROM at the ROM fundraising bash. This year’s creative circus theme was a three-ring success – and a record-breaking PROM with over 900 guests in attendance!
Hundreds of big top beauties and carnival cuties danced the night away, indulged in delicious treats and enjoyed a midway packed with fun-fair activities and live entertainment.
Dr. Sarah Fee, Associate Curator, Eastern Hemisphere Textiles & Costumes, is the first-ever recipient of the YPC Research Fund. This November 2011, YPC supported Sarah’s trip to Oman to research ancient forms of pitloom weaving and the trade routes of the Muscat cloth, which will inform part of a future ROM exhibition.
