The Young Women’s Caucus is proud to present
THE APRON SHOW (A TOURING EXHIBITION)
This exhibition will start in Hancock, MI. It will travel to St. Louis, MO and Denver, CO - spending a month on display in each city.
Aprons are protective garments worn to keep clothing clean. Before the 1960’s, aprons were very popular for women to keep their “delicate” clothing from getting soiled. Aprons are also associated with women because of their “domestic, homemaker responsibilities”.

How to Participate: Make an apron or alter an old one!
Open to males and females, age 12 to 39.
Open to all media.
