NEW YORK — Anna Wintour is a staunch supporter of The Costume Institute. Now, The Metropolitan Museum of Art is showing its appreciation for the love. On Tuesday, it named the space occupied at the museum by The Costume Institute the Anna Wintour Costume Center.
The center will include The Costume Institute’s exhibition galleries, library, research areas, conservation laboratory and offices. It will be anchored by the 4,200-square-foot Lizzie and Jonathan Tisch Gallery. (The couple made a $10 million gift toward the renovation, with $1 million commitments from Janet and Howard Kagan and the Samuel I. Newhouse Foundation.) The center will also include The Irene Lewisohn Costume Reference Library and the Carl and Iris Barrel Apfel Gallery, for example.
