What! Not White?
The Victorian Bride

February 14 - May 29, 2016
Reception: This Sunday! Valentine's Day, February 14, 2:00-4:00 p.m.

The tradition of wearing a white wedding dress did not begin until Queen Victoria’s wedding in 1840. Before that, blue, brown, black or gray outfits were far more common. This Valentine's Day reception will be a beautiful way to reflect on the past while you dream about your future. Toast to your own happily ever after with a little bubbly, strawberries and chocolate!

This free reception will set the perfect romantic mood before heading out for your Valentine's dinner. The exhibition is drawn from the Mattatuck Museum’s costume collection with loans from the Gunn Memorial Library & Museum and the Torrington Historical Society.

Real Art Ways and the Mark Twain House co-present a talk by artist and author KAREN FINLEY at the Mark Twain House.

No other artist captures the drama and fragility of the AIDS era as Karen Finley does in her 1990 classic book Shock Treatment. This work excoriated homophobia and misogyny at a time when artists and writers were under attack for challenging the status quo.

Finley will reflect on her career and discuss the 25th Anniversary edition of Shock Treatment.

Come celebrate our winter "Living Art" event!
Limited seating!  Reserve your tickets now!
