PPL's 2018 Exhibition and Program Series @ Providence Public Library | Providence | Rhode Island | United States

Providence Public Library’s fourth annual Exhibition and Program series called HairBrained is focused on hair. Specifically, the exhibition explores the ways in which hair defines and reflects culture, self-identity, agency and politics while the program series, which is inspired by images and texts in the exhibition, will offer cultural programs and educational activities for all ages that explore how and why we have grown, cut, shaved, shaped, woven, adorned and covered the hair on our heads, from centuries ago until today.

The HairBrained exhibition features a selection of items from Providence Public Library’s collections: postcards, photographs, pochoir prints, magazines, historic children’s books, advertising trade cards and more. Items will be on exhibit in the Providence Journal Rhode Island Room on level one from March to June.
