Whitework: Women Stitching Identity

August 4, 2021 9:00 AM
1444 Kentucky Street
Bowling Green, KY 42101 United States

How did women express their support for the new American nation?

Featuring textiles from the Kentucky Museum and Kentucky Historical Society, Whitework: Women Stitching Identity explores the significance of early white embellished textiles that have been largely ignored, undervalued, and misinterpreted. Whitework holds a “special place” within the cultural geography of textile making, connecting regional textile making with broader narratives of American women’s lives, political participation, and self-expression during the formative years of the Early Republic. Mounted in partnership with the Kentucky Historical Society, Whitework proves that American women have always been involved in forming our national identity and culture.

The Museum is open to the public on Wednesday through Saturday 9AM-4PM.

The exhibit is on display through November 2021.
