Living History: Meet a Silhouette Artist
Saturday, January 25 | 12–4 pm

Free with Museum Admission

In the 19th century, silhouette artists traveled from town to town and captured the likenesses of individuals and their loved ones—often the only portrait of them ever created. Learn about the many types of silhouettes—from black profile cut-paper to painted images—in our new exhibition In Profile: A Look at Silhouettes, then join artist and Historical Interpreter Lauren Muney as she brings the timeless artform to life! All ages
