A "Meet the Creator" and closing reception for the current exhibit, "Faces and Fashions of the Middle Border," will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday at Dakota Discovery Museum, Mitchell

Saturday will be the last weekend of the exhibit, which will formally close on Wednesday.

The Faces and Fashions exhibit features several recent museum acquisitions including a bustle skirt from the late 1890s and flapper dresses from the 1920s. In addition, a boy's outfit and child's bicycle, a tuxedo worn to the 1905 inauguration of South Dakota Governor Samuel H. Elrod, shoes from children to adult, and numerous other pieces.

Exhibit creator, Pat Everett will be present to greet museum guests during the reception. Admission to the museum during the reception is free. Guests are asked to consider a donation to the museum to defray expenses.

With the closing of Faces and Fashions, DDM is preparing for its next exhibit, which focuses on the hunting traditions of the region. The planned opening of the exhibit is mid-September, coinciding with Family Night at the Museum and Discovery Day, September 9-10.
