For Better and For Worse: Sixteen Decades of Wedding Wear at Vassar

May 23-June 9, 2013 at the Palmer Gallery, Main Building, Vassar College (Poughkeepsie, NY)

In 2007, Vassar received a donation of four wedding dresses from the same Vassar family—three generations of dresses. The upcoming exhibition includes these four dresses, plus a fifth dress on loan to represent the fourth generation, as well as other wedding wear and photographs collected over the years. Explore changing views of marriage over the last 160 years, including current views on marriage equality.
