Lunch & Learn: Apron Strings - Ties to the Past
Although taken for granted by many social and art historians, the apron is the subject of a fascinating reevaluation in this presentation by Erica White, museum manager of the Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum in Gladstone. Using aprons dating from the late 1730s through the present, she chronicles the history of aprons and the changing attitudes toward women and domestic work. Bring in or wear a special family heirloom apron of your own and be prepared to share your own stories too! We provide bottled water and dessert, please bring a sack lunch. If you wish to view the museum exhibits, admission may be purchased at the front desk upon arrival.
