Cinderella / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. Cinderella. 1997. 2 pages. (Life-sized). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: Two life-sized dresses (one raggedy house dress, and one shiny party dress) have text rubber-stamped on the bodices—Peggy Patterson’s story about her reluctance to share the Cinderella story with her young daughter, because she didn’t want her to get the idea that only a prince could “save” her.
