Enduring Objects

Enduring Objects: Stories Behind Everyday Outfits & Accessories  was an event hosted by the Chicago Cultural Alliance at the Chicago Cultural Center on Feburary 11, 2016.

What we wear is often as important as what we do during our most important life events.  Here the public had the opportunity to present items or articles of clothing they had at home and share with us why they feel a connection to it.  Joining the event was our moderator Lori Barcliff Baptista from UIC's Director of the African-American Cultural Center and two representatives from CCA's member museums, the Latvian Folk Art Museum's president Dace Kezbers & the Chicago Japanese American Historical Society's president Jean Mishima.
