Past Exhibition

Apron Chronicles

A Patchwork Of American Recollections

When the major traveling exhibition known as Apron Chronicles premiered in 2005, its primary focus was to transport us to a simpler time. Today, as we contemplate how to move forward from a turbulent and disrupted present, Apron Chronicles gives us the opportunity not to escape reality but to see it in a different light. Come explore the themes of hope, connection, survival, achievement, regret, and liberation, as told from the healing perspective of connectivity. 

Apron Chronicles features photography, personal narratives, and one-of-a-kind aprons, and lets visitors add their own stories to the experience. And while the storytellers’ recollections were each prompted by an apron, they’re not about fabric. Sharing a depth of emotion and social complexity both intimately personal and universally relatable, the exhibit reminds us that we're all in this together.

History Colorado is the final stop in the Apron Chronicles’ sixteen-year journey.
