Americans spend much of our time and money living in, working on, and enjoying our homes. House & Home, a new traveling exhibition at YDL-Whittaker, explores what it means to be at home. The exhibition is an immersive experience, with galleries that come alive with objects, photographs, and sound.
This is more than just a story of architecture. Exhibition galleries feature objects used to furnish homes, from an Easy Bake Oven to a yarn swift; iconic house designs by Thomas Jefferson, Frank Gehry, and Frank Lloyd Wright; life-size wall sections demonstrating different construction techniques; displays on how Americans have financed homes through the years, and original films looking back at the social and cultural history of home life.
Stop in to view the exhibit, and look out for great programs offering a variety of perspectives on the places we call home.
