The Life Cycle of Clothing in the 19th Century
March 18 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pmFree
Americans invested a tremendous amount of labor into making and maintaining their wardrobes during the 19th century. Erika Holst, Curator of History at the Illinois State Museum will join us to explore the life cycle of clothing during the 1800s: how it was created, mended, remade, washed, and ultimately recycled. Erika will also highlight examples of garments and artifacts from the Illinois State Museum’s collections. This program is sponsored by the Illinois Humanities Road Scholars Speakers Bureau.
