(OH) September 16, 2022-August 27, 2023, AS THE WORLD WEDS: GLOBAL WEDDING TRADITIONS, All Ages. Kent State University Museum, 515 Hilltop Drive, Kent, OH 44242, (330) 672-3450, museum@kent.edu, Tues.-Sat. 11 am-5 pm; Sunday 12-4pm. The rituals and practices surrounding weddings have changed over time as much as they have differed across space. The practice of the bride wearing a white dress exclusively for the wedding ceremony has its origins in Europe in the nineteenth century. By the twentieth century many brides around the world followed the western custom for a white wedding gown. Nonetheless, despite the growing prevalence of white dresses, many brides through choice or necessity wore different styles for their wedding. This exhibition looks beyond the white bridal gown to the rich and deeply symbolic clothing and textiles linked to wedding ceremonies around the world. Tickets: General Admission ($6); Senior Citizens 55+ ($5); Students and Children, 5-18 yrs. Old ($4); Children under 5 (Free); Kent State students, staff, and faculty with KSU ID (Free); Any Sunday admission (Free). www.kent.edu/museum.
