Dress Code: Frills, Fashion & Function in Northeast Nebraska

November 16, 2018 – April 27, 2019

Sometimes we dress to express ourselves; other times, to protect ourselves; and many times, we simply wear what is available to us.  An item of clothing can weave unique cultural and personal stories. This exhibition features selections from EVM’s textile collection, unveiling years of Northeast Nebraskan garments, both fashionable and functional.
