Member Monday – PMM’s Costume Collection & the China Trade with Sarah Cole
July 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Free for members
Mainers in the merchant marine traveled all over the world and brought back souvenirs for their families. This includes a variety of clothes from Asia which are now part of our textile collection. Intricate hand stitched embroidery on these clothes include a wide variety of imagery that give insight into the world view of 19th c Asians. We will look closely at some beautiful embroidery and talk about the significance of the flora, fauna, and objects depicted.
Member Mondays are included as a member benefit and feature intimate monthly Zoom lunchtime programs about objects and photographs in our collection presented by staff members. Topics vary every month – it’s a fun way to take a close look at items in our collections and get a peek behind the scenes at PMM. Not a member? Join here.
