I am really excited to be a part of this exhibit! Collaboration with artist Orlando Hernández pictures by José Ramírez   Join us in spring of 2018 as we focus on...hair! ON DISPLAY MARCH - JUNE 2018 The HairBrained exhibition will focus on hairstyles throughout history—braids, curls, facial hair, wigs—and the ways in which hair defines and reflects culture, self-identity, agency, and politics. Exhibition materials will include books, prints, magazines, and photographs from Providence Public Library’s Special Collections. Items will be on display from March - June 2018. Inspired by images and texts in the exhibition, our series of cultural programs and educational activities for all ages explores how and why we have grown, cut, shaved, shaped, woven, adorned, and covered the hair on our heads, from centuries ago 'till today. PPL’s 2018 Exhibition & Program Series HairBrained KICK-OFF PARTY is free and open to all!
