Apron Chronicles opened at the History Colorado Center and we hosted an exclusive virtual chat with guest curator EllynAnn Geisel.
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.

What do you notice when you see a mural? Lucha Martínez de Luna will make you think deeply about that question thanks to “Shroud, Destruction, and Neglect,” an article that makes the case for preserving Chicano/a/x murals. Jonthan Rees’s essay examines how it is difficult—a century later—to establish exactly how many people died in the 1921 Pueblo Flood and why the disaster’s impact is still felt today. And there is so much more, from recollections of a Dust Bowl childhood on the Eastern Plains to intrepid journalism from The Denver Post’s Polly Pry to expose abuse at the Fort Lewis Indian School in 1903.
