"Apron Chronicles: A Patchwork of American Recollections," a nationally touring exhibition, is America's most nostalgic, thought provoking and generational friendly traveling exhibition. Pairing powerful photography with real world stories and sentimental ties to the past in the form of vintage aprons, the exhibit tells the emotional stories of 46 individuals, each of whom have unique memories about aprons and the people who wore them.

Pairing artifacts and stories with portraits taken by award-winning photographer Kristina Loggia, the diverse contributors include a 111-year-old mother and her only child;a Holocaust survivor; a biology professor from Mali, Africa and a preteen and her grandmother. Their stories explore the people behind the aprons and give life to the fabrics and the exhibit. Adding emphasis and history to these stories, the gallery space also features 150 vintage aprons, hung on clotheslines throughout the exhibit.
