Women of Concord

May 13, 2016 — September 25, 2016


Editor, silversmith, social justice activist, artist, domestic, Army nurse, teacher, factory worker, author, farmer, mother, philanthropist…All describe the women of Concord – some famous, some almost invisible – featured in this special exhibition.  Each portrait, needlework, or piece of furniture, carefully preserved by succeeding generations and now by the Concord Museum, makes it possible to create meaning from the lives of ordinary citizens as well as prominent residents.

Her face is shiny enough to light up my life.
