June has been a traditional month for weddings since the Middle Ages. This June, Toni Kiser, Assistant Director of Collections & Exhibits/Registrar, will talk about WWII-era weddings. Learn how many brides still managed to have gorgeous gowns and delicious cakes, despite the rationing of silk and sugar. Hear a few stories of love that kept men and women going through the war, and see the artifacts related to these love stories and weddings.
Dinner with a Curator is a seasonal series where Museum staff and guests will discuss a featured topic related to World War II while enjoying a delicious three-course dinner catered by Chef John Besh's American Sector. Space is limited and reservations are required. To see a schedule of topics or make a reservation, visit http://www.american-sector.org/ or call 504-528-1944 x 213.
