Join Colorado State University’s Dr. Ann Little will examine women’s identity around the turn of the 19th century. Did the shape and silhouette of clothes impact their experiences? How did ideas of nature inspire these women? Women during this period were touring natural wonders and writing about their beauty and being inspired by nature. But during this time, they were also considered natural resources for a nation that was eager to populate the continent with white American families. How was their American identity formed and reimagined by the inner and outer societal forces? There will be a companion exhibit on display at CCHA.
FABRIC OF AMERICA SERIES, PART 3: THE MODERN AMERICAN WOMAN, 1900-1940
$20 non-members / $15 members
Join the Smithsonian’s Dr. Alison R. Bazylinski to discuss how changes in women’s identity affected fashion and mutually influenced their role in society. How did ideas of citizenship impact clothing from the beginning of the 20th century to before WWII? Did race, ethnicity, and class imbue their dress and fabric choices? This program will explore how a new consumer society was being created where fashion would be defined by American women who played an influential role as both consumer and citizen. There will be a companion exhibit on display at CCHA.
