Lecture June 9: Down through the Decades
Aprons have been a universal cover-up, a wearable garment for thousands of years. In recent decades, however, they’ve been pushed to the back of a closet or the bottom of drawers, even been disposed of. Yvonne Cory, a fiber artist and curator from Easton, Minnesota, is keeping the history of aprons alive. This exhibition features both vintage aprons and those she individually designed, including full bib and half aprons for children, men, and women – all from Cory’s collection.
Textile Center exhibitions are generously supported by the Joan Mondale Endowment.
