A patchwork of America recollections


When the major traveling exhibition known as Apron Chronicles premiered in 2005, its primary focus was to transport us to a simpler time. Today, as we contemplate how to move forward from a turbulent and disrupted present, Apron Chronicles gives us the opportunity not to escape reality but to see it in a different light. Come explore the themes of hope, connection, survival, achievement, regret, and liberation, as told from the healing perspective of connectivity.


Apron Chronicles features photography, personal narratives, and one-of-a-kind aprons, and lets visitors add their own stories to the experience. And while the storytellers' recollections were each prompted by an apron, they're not about fabric. Sharing a depth of emotion and social complexity both intimately personal and universally relatable, the exhibit reminds us that we're all in this together.
