Apron Chronicles (Sep. 16 – Dec. 11, 2016)

September 16, 2016 @ 10:00 am - December 11, 2016 @ 7:00 pm

Just as in the early days, no one wears an apron to Club, although at a recent FCE convention, there was a program on aprons, and we all wore ours and participated in an apron parade. The styles reminded us of how much has changed for country women, but the apron and its strings still draw the family together, and home life will always be our first and highest priority. ©EllynAnne Geisel

Our traveling exhibit The Apron Chronicles explores the American experience as seen and read through nearly 50 images, text in story form, and 155 vintage aprons. The exhibit arose from a collaboration between self-described “apron curator” or “apron archaeologist” EllynAnne Geisel, and award-winning documentary photographer Kristina Loggia. The stories explore the people behind the aprons and give life to both the fabric and the exhibit.
