Catalina Island Museum welcomes visitors this summer with a variety of programs and culturally enriching activities. 

Experience the island through the eyes of some of its longest residents with the Catalina Story Project Films. 

Join Kevin Jones, curator of the FIDM Museum at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising in Los Angeles, for a special presentation on Friday, August 13 titled adDRESSING Titanic: Appearance & Identity in 1912. Examining the global cross-section of the late Edwardian Era represented in the RMS Titanic’s diverse passenger population, Jones delves into the unique identities of the ship’s travelers. 

From first-class to steerage and crew, this presentation discusses some of the most well-known individuals aboard the Titanic, along with the garments and accessories that are known to have been worn aboard, survived, or have been discovered—and sometimes recovered—at the wreck site. This event relates to the current exhibition Titanic: Real Artifacts, Real People, Real Stories. 

All guests will have the opportunity to explore the exhibition prior to the presentation. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the presentation runs from 8 pm to 9 pm in the Ackerman Family Amphitheater. Tickets are $15 for members and $20 for the general public and can be purchased online at
