How We Slept
The History of the Bedroom and Other Home Spaces
Early American homes contained space for sleeping, cooking, eating, working, and entertaining. By the late 1800s, the makeup of the home and ideas about sleep, personal space, and entertaining had changed quite a bit. Join us for “How We Slept:The History of the Bedroom and Other Home Spaces” featuring coverlets from the McCarl Collection,clothing and home accessories from the Kerr Memorial Museum in Oakmont, and artwork from the Westmoreland Museum of American Art.
January 19, 2017 through June 16, 2017.
