Apron Chronicles: A Patchwork of American Recollections is a nostalgic, thought provoking, and inter-generational exhibition. Touring since 2004, Apron Chronicles presents the American experience through 50 photographic stories and an outstanding collection of 100 vintage aprons. The West Baton Rouge Museum curator, Angelique Bergeron, has added a local Louisiana touch to the exhibit by including collections of work aprons from chefs and blacksmiths, to a collection of aprons from the Port Allen Holy Family Church worn by women staging the annual St. Joseph’s Altar. In addition, LSU Textile Museum is loaning their display “Feed Sack Fashions” to be included in the Apron Chronicles exhibit at the West Baton Rouge Museum.
