Description

The spring 2013 historic clothing exhibition at Vassar College was entitled "For Better and For Worse: Sixteen Decades of Wedding Wear at Vassar," and was curated by Arden Kirkland (VC Class of 1993) and Faculty Emeritus Holly K. Hummel,

In 2007, Vassar received a donation of four wedding dresses from the same Vassar family—three generations of dresses. The exhibition included 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. The exhibition explored changing views of marriage over the last 160 years, including timely views on marriage equality.

The exhibition took place in the Palmer Gallery in the College Center, Main Building, at Vassar, from May 23 - June 9, 2013.
