March & April: 200 years of women’s fashions

UPDATE: The library is closed until further notice due to covid-19 concerns. This exhibit will remain up until the library reopens; please check back for the most current news.

This March and April the Northeast Harbor Library is hosting an exhibit of women’s clothing and accessories from the past 200 years. 

The items displayed belong to individuals and families on MDI and the surrounding areas, some passed down for generations. This year marks 100 years of the women’s right to vote in the U.S. and we are honoring that legacy with this exhibit women’s clothing and accessories from before and after this important landmark in our history. As women have gained liberties, fashion trends have shifted from restrictive and cumbersome to expressive and freeing.

The exhibit will be up March and April in our Mellon Room. This exhibit is part of the women’s history project in collaboration with other area libraries.
