Main Gallery Museum Exhibits
Exhibits created for the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution's (DAR) Museum in Washington, D.C. Celebrating the life and legacy of Founding Mother Martha Dandridge Washington, the exhibition entitled "Pleasing Things Made in Her Honor: Martha Washington and the Colonial Revival" juxtaposes approximately one hundred 18th-century antiques and their late 19th-century and 20th-century equivalents and copies. Positioning Martha Washington as sartorial and cultural muse, the exhibition documents the enduring affection people have for the former First Lady and her style.
These large-scale display boards were integrated into a comprehensive exhibit that included three-dimensional vignettes, mannequins, furniture and objects.
