Exhibition - Iconic Culture: From Little Black Dress to Bell Bottoms

Wednesday, Jun 12, 2019 at 11:00am

Acorn Hall
68 Morris Avenue
Morristown, NJ 07960

From the timeless designs of Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel to the trend-setting bell bottoms of Sonny and Cher, MCHS explores more than 50 years of cultural history through a retrospective featuring nearly 100 pieces from its historic textile collection. Iconic Culture will examine how changes in clothing styles mirrored the social climate of their time and the seminal moments and people who defined their decade – with a focus on New Jersey history. 

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 assassination of President Kennedy.

Cost: $6 for adults, $5 for seniors, $3 for students, and is free for children under 12 and MCHS members
