Pretty Powerful Exhibition Opening Saturday, October 23

Pretty Powerful Exhibition

PRETTY POWERFUL –This extraordinary fashion exhibit has been made possible by the leadership of WHM in partnership with a “powerful” team of Marlene Persky and Moira Moynihan Manoog, Co-Chairs; Tay Ann Jay, Honorary Chair; James Hogan, Advisor; the organizing committee, and content/interpretation/design contributors Efua Dufu, Morgan Johnson, and Jade Nortey. Our sincere thanks to Charlotte A. Haller, author, historian, and guest curator; Madeline Ryan, author and historian; Heather Wilder, exhibit labels; Kurt Weideman and Helen Riegle of HER Design; Tyson Miller, lighting designer; the team at WB Incorporated, fabricators; Lynne Bassett and Susan Ward, textile historians; and Cheryl Richards, photographer extraordinaire.

Using Worcester Historical Museum’s extraordinary garments and loans from the community, we are creating a dramatic exhibit that will mark 100 years since the adoption of the 19th Amendment through fashion and the changing roles of women.


Worcester Historical Museum is grateful to our many friends, followers, and supporters who have either loaned to the exhibit or, through their financial commitments, have made the exhibit possible. Thank you to Sadick Public Insurance Adjusters, Inc. for sponsoring the October 21 – 23, 2021 Sneak Previews and Opening. We look forward to welcoming you!
