Curatorial staff presents an engaging lecture on the little known art and tradition of hairwork jewelry. This art form grew in popularity as a form of adornment during times of mourning. The lecture explores hairwork jewelry and mourning traditions from the 18th century to 19th century. Rarely exhibited pieces of hair jewelry will be displayed including a piece associated with George Washington, a rare 19th century woven hair bracelet, and a Civil War Era hair locket.
