“The Mystery of Ribbon Dolls/Ribbon Ladies”

This is the collection of Libby Sturdy of Ribbon Lady pictures. These pictures were popular crafts appearing in the 1920’s. The “ladies” were made of ribbon and other embellishments. This exhibit only runs until the middle of July. Call Alice at 708-927-1092 if you would like to view this exhibit on other than a Monday morning. The museum can be opened for you at any time. We also will be open on Sunday, July 5th from 2-4 and Sunday July 12th from 2-4.

When: Sunday, July 5th through mid-July

“Wedding Gowns”

There is a new exhibit of wedding gowns at the Robert Vial House. Since our last wedding display in 2018 we have acquired six more wedding gowns and four bridesmaid dresses. We decided to display them this summer despite our Covid 19 restrictions. Hopefully this look at weddings past will warm our hearts a little in these strange times. May this remind us of the many couples who have had to postpone or modify their wedding plans this year and who will have all this to look back on as they celebrate through the years.

Where: Robert Vial House:
The house will be open on the first Sunday of each month through October from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The house is also open each Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
When: Sunday, July 5th through October
Cost: Free
