Apron Chronicles: A Patchwork of American Recollections is described as America’s most nostalgic, thought-provoking and generational-­friendly traveling exhibition.

Touring since 2004, Apron Chronicles presents the American experience through 21 photographs by Kristina Loggia, accompanying text in story form and 50 vintage aprons.

Best-selling author EllynAnne Geisel’s stories and vintage apron collection give voice to the exhibit, with award-winning photographer Loggia preserving the storytellers’ images in an environmental style that complements the unadorned honesty of their recollections.
