Dressed for the Job: Clevelanders in Uniform Exhibit Opening
September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the Cleveland History Center and Museum Advisory Council Curator of Costume and Textiles Patty Edmonson for the grand opening of the newest costume exhibit in the Chisholm Halle Costume Wing, “Dressed for the Job: Clevelanders in Uniform.” This exhibition will include garments, decorative arts, archival documents, photographs, and paintings that tell stories of triumph and tragedy in Northeast Ohio. From the desegregation of the Girl Scouts, to wartime struggles, to athletics and spiritual life, it will delve into issues of race, class, and gender, the exhibit will have a broad appeal. The exhibition will remain relevant by addressing issues of discrimination, equality, and working people. Its stories will feel particularly meaningful in this moment of recognizing and honoring frontline workers and the people that keep our country going.
