This nationwide traveling exhibition is comprised of photographs, stories, and 200 vintage aprons. Curated by EllynAnne Geisel, the contributors to Apron Chronicles "recall people who wore aprons and what they represented to families; recall events when aprons were worn; reflect recipes, values and traditions from gentler, less complicated times; express the bond between parents and children; represent survival, friendship, opportunity; challenge, and modern perspective."
