A Celebration of the Apron: Remembering the Richness of Our Lives Through a Humble Icon.
Accompanied by a laundry basket full of aprons, EllynAnn Geisel speaks on the apron’s historical odyssey, shares her life-changing apron journey, and discusses the people, aprons and stories she’s met and collected along the way. Audience members are encouraged to wear their own favorite aprons, and share in the storytelling.
Self-described “apron curator” or “apron archaeologist” EllynAnne Geisel collaborated with award-winning documentary photographer Kristina Loggia to create the exhibit, The Apron Chronicles that is currently open in the Park City Museum’s Tozer Gallery. The exhibit explores the American experience as seen and read through nearly 50 images, text in story form, and 155 vintage aprons. The stories explore the people behind the aprons and give life to both the fabric and the exhibit.
