Exhibit the Furnishing touch: What's in a House and Why

Event Description: "The 'Furnishing' Touch" tells a history of American home furnishings in miniature. Home furnishing styles were influenced by functional demands, means of production, and lifestyle behavior of the time. The exhibit traces styles beginning with The Mannerist style (1600-1700) that was popular with English settlers in America and ending with the Colonial Revival style that started in the 1870s and is still found in popular home trends today.
This exhibit is supported by a Indiana Humanities Initiative grant that also allows the museum to host three speakers who will deliver presentations on furniture and domestic life.
The exhibit runs through May 28, 2017.
