From Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms

Sunday, September 9 through Saturday, July 14, 2019

Iconic Culture: From Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms, promises to be a one-stop spot for a stroll down memory lane.

From the timeless designs of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel to the trend-setting bell bottoms of Sonny and Cher, Iconic Culture explores more than 50 years of cultural history through a retrospective featuring nearly 125 pieces from MCHS’s textile collection. Tours will illustrate how changes in clothing styles mirrored the social climate of the time and the seminal moments that defined the decade.

In addition to the fashions, Iconic Culture will highlight 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.

This multimedia exhibit features music, television shows, and radio broadcasts. Visitors will also have an opportunity to share personal recollections about significant events, such as the assassinations of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King or the success of the Apollo Mission.
