100 Years of History and Fashion

 

Fashion cannot be removed from its historical context. Clothing is lived in, literally; it is made functional and meaningful through it production and use. How did historical events, new technologies, and shifting cultural values affect fashion? What materials were available, what was acceptable, and how were materials and information were disseminated?

Featuring:

  • Clothing donated or loaned by Stevens County residents
  • Dress up area for kids
  • Related programs throughout the year
  • Blog posts exploring other aspects of how history and fashion are connected

The Past, Present, and Future of the Morris Theatre

The Stevens County Historical Museum, University of Minnesota, Morris, and the Morris Theatre Co-op have come together to create an exhibit looking at the place of the Morris Theatre in our community.  The exhibit opens mid-November and includes video, historic photos, artifacts, and more.  A reception will be held November 28th, 6:00-8:00 pm.

UMM students have created 3 short videos about the past, present, and future roles of the theatre. The Morris Theatre Co-op has loaned a variety of objects, from film reels to an early cash register.
