Apron Strings: Ties to the Past

Jostens Gallery  |  January 25, 2020 - March 16, 2020

Apron Strings: Ties to the Past reviews the apron’s role as an emotionally charged vehicle for expression with a rich and varied craft history that is still relevant today. Featuring aprons dating from the 1900s through the present, the exhibition chronicles changing attitudes toward women and domestic work. It also surveys the wide range of design and craft techniques apron-makers have used to express themselves, while still working within creative venues traditionally available to women.

This is a program of ExhibitsUSA and the National Endowment for the Arts.
