A Night to Remember – Vintage Formal Attire

December 8 – January 26, 2018

The Emerson partnered with the Gallatin History Museum to curate two exhibits that explore the origins of school and social dances as well as vintage fashions. These exhibits compliment this year’s Celebration of the Arts theme and the Emerson’s 25th/ 100th anniversary. The Emerson existed as a schoolhouse from 1918 to 1992. To honor the roots of the building and commemorate the future of the organization these exhibits were formulated.

On display in the Weaver Room are historic photographs from school and community dances that took place around the Gallatin Valley. The Lobby Gallery is showing Vintage Formal Attire courtesy of the Gallatin History Museum and individual community members. Please join us in reveling in our past and rejoicing in our future this holiday season!
