of Warren County
Opera Houses of Warren County is an intern-developed exhibit created by Jameyrae Valdivia, a senior from Monmouth College. As a part of her internship, she was tasked with finding a subject that resonated with her and to develop an exhibit around it. The history and imagery of the Opera Houses that once dotted the landscape of our county grabbed her attention and makes for a nuanced exhibit, touching on a number of historical topics. Come visit the world before radio, television, and the Internet, when citizens dressed up and went out to visit the opera in the early 20th century. The display of photographs, show programs, and fashion accessories worn to the opera highlight this exhibit and its visually stunning subject.
