Penn Museum Kicks Off New Exhibit: “The Stories We Wear”

In Focus

How does what we wear tell a story? The Penn Museum in Philadelphia says it’s on a mission to make archaeology and anthropology accessible to everyone. It kicks off a new exhibit called “The Stories We Wear.” Doctor Lauren Ristvet is lead curator of the exhibit which explores those common threads through more than two-thousand years of style.

A Philadelphia Eagles Football Jersey is among items in the exhibit as well as a gown worn by the legendary singer and Philadelphia native Marian Anderson.
