The Inaugural Impressions exhibit will close on May 30.

The exhibit, located in the Sam Noble Gallery of the Oklahoma History Center explores the lives and contributions of Oklahoma’s first ladies and gentleman while their spouses served as governors.
The exhibit will feature a variety of gowns from the Oklahoma Historical Society’s collections. Oklahoma’s first ladies and gentleman have always played a leading role in our history. Their professionalism and poise have increased the public’s awareness of worthy causes.

From Lillian Haskell to Sarah Stitt, our first ladies have assumed an active role in office. This exhibit highlights how our first ladies developed civic responsibility while navigating the social conventions of past eras. The exhibit follows the evolution of their roles, forged in the 1950s, 60s, 70s, and beyond.
