Iconic Culture: From Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms

June 6 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Wednesday and Thursday, repeating until July 11, 2019

Now that winter’s woolens are packed away, it’s time to bring out the seersucker and linen and learn how different fabrics and styles helped past generations stay cool and comfortable as the temperatures rose. Join MCHS as we explore more than 50 years of cultural history through a retrospective featuring nearly 100 pieces from its historic textile collection, now through Sunday, July 14, 2019.

Fifty spring and summer pieces have replaced their winter counterparts throughout MCHS’s acclaimed and ground-breaking exhibit, Iconic Culture: From Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms. Iconic Culture highlights cultural milestones in local, state, and national history that coincided with the Roaring 20s, Great Depression, World War II, Civil Rights Movement, and Vietnam Era and explores how the cultural climate of these times directly influenced the fashions we wore.

Admission, which includes the exhibits and landscaped grounds, is $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students, and is free for children under 12 and MCHS members.
