“Pockets of Time” Presentation at North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum
BISMARCK, N.D. – “Pockets of Time: The Gendered History of How We Carry Things,” a free public lecture by Susan Curtis, will be presented at 2 p.m. on Sunday, June 27, at the North Dakota Heritage Center & State Museum in Bismarck. Curtis is collections manager of the Emily Reynolds Historic Costume Collection at North Dakota State University.
Sharing images of historic clothing from various museums and the Emily Reynolds Historic Costume Collection, Curtis will explore how the pocket developed in European and American clothing and how it became a point of contention among women in the twentieth century.
This program is related to the temporary exhibit "Fashion & Function: North Dakota Style," which showcases the everyday fashions of North Dakotans shaped by elements such as weather, career choices, cultural traditions, available resources, and pop culture. It is also part of the State Historical Society of North Dakota's Sensational Sundays series. Sensational Sundays are free cultural programs that include a variety of lectures, concerts, movies, and tours.
