Are you an MHS member or seriously considering becoming one? Members get a lot of great benefits all the time, but this Thursday, June 23, they get an extra special treat–an invitation to the opening party for MHS’s hotly anticipated new exhibit, “Dressing Up, Fitting In, Standing Out: Adornment and Identity in Maine, 1750-1950.”
If you can’t make it to the opening, or aren’t ready for membership at this time, the exhibit opens to the public the next day (Friday, June 25) and will remain up through May 27, 2012. Plenty of time to get a look at the dresses, hats, canes, jewels, and other fabulous items we’ll have on display.
Meanwhile, there are plenty of other programs to satisfy your history craving this summer, including a new slideshow/bike tour (really!) just added this week. Check out all the details in This Week at MHS.
