Join us for a program  by historian Erika Holst on "The Life Cycle of Clothing."

Americans invested a tremendous amount of labor into making and maintaining their wardrobes during the 19th century. This presentation will explore the life cycle of clothing during the 1800s: how it was created, mended, remade, washed, and ultimately recycled.

The program will begin at 6 p.m. at Oak Park River Forest Museum. Admission is free for all.
