Four-month HairBrained Exhibition & Programs to Focus on Hair

Providence Public Library’s (PPL) fourth annual Exhibition & Program series called HairBrained is focused on hair. Specifically, the exhibition explores the ways in which hair defines and reflects culture, self-identity, agency, and politics. Meanwhile the program series, which is inspired by images and texts in the exhibition, will offer cultural programs and educational activities for all ages that explore how and why we have grown, cut, shaved, shaped, woven, adorned and covered the hair on our heads, from centuries ago ’til today. Exhibition materials will include books, prints, magazines, and photographs from PPL’s Special Collections. Items will be on exhibit from March - June 2018.
