More than 650 members of the Wellesley community and the general public thronged the Davis Museum’s opening on Feb. 8 celebrating the launch of Both/And, a retrospective exhibition of the work of Lorraine O’Grady ’55. Many sported white gloves as a tribute to O’Grady’s iconic persona, Mlle Bourgeoise Noire. Both/And is on view through June 2 and is free and open to all.
