We're finishing out our Women's Suffrage Centennial celebration with a holiday exhibition that features fashions of the mid- to late twentieth century, as reflected through a range of dolls and dollhouses.

Displays include a sixty-year timeline (1960-2020) of dressed Mattel Barbie &
 Friends dolls and accessories; popular competitors that reveal sometimes complementary and sometimes controversial fashion trends; and dollhouse architecture and accessories in mid-century modern and other styles.

For dollhouse enthusiasts, this year's holiday exhibition also highlights the miniature art of Rockland's own Kathleen Brennan (#smalltimedecorator on Instagram).
