Just got back from a wonderful trip to Seattle with my husband. The Rosalie Whyel Museum of Doll Art is sadly closing in March 2012.
Truly an inspirational visit to what will be a greatly missed resource for doll lovers, historians, costume designers. Ms. Whyel presents the doll as more than a plaything, but more of a link to our past. She broadens the scope of what a doll is and what it can represent.
There are not many of these treasures left but thankfully, the Museum is creating a DVD of the exhibits that will hopefully reach a broader audience.
