Milwaukee Public Museum showcases dress of area Muslim women

MILWAUKEE - A new exhibit at the Milwaukee Public Museum showcases the dress of Muslim women from the Milwaukee area.

The exhibit features 30 traditional outfits as well as special occasion and day-to-day items like table sets and jewelry.

It's called "Beyond the Veil" and is a joint project between the museum and Muslim Women's Research and Resource Institute. It aims to expand public knowledge concerning the significance of cultural clothing beyond stereotypes.

The museum says the exhibit also illustrates how women from different generations continue to recreate and adapt elements of their cultural dress.

It runs through September 1 and is free with museum admission.
