Crowning Glory Closes

Slovak and Moravian folk dress (kroje) is stunning, with each piece more beautiful than the last. A full kroj is made up of many components, including skirts, aprons, vests, and sashes. Each region and village has a different style of folk dress. This exhibit focuses on the crowning glory: the headdress. 143 Slovak and Moravian headdresses are on display. Hours of labor and generations of meaning, mystique, and creativity are infused in each treasured heirloom.
