A Legacy in Silk: Eliza Lucas Pinckney's Gown Lecture with Curator of Historic Textiles Virginia Theerman

Join Curator of Historic Textiles, Virginia Theerman, as we kick off the Charleston Museum’s 2022 fall lecture series.  Theerman will be speaking about one of the treasures of the Museum’s collection: Eliza Lucas Pinckney’s pink silk robe à la française. Theerman will discuss the history of the gown, its time in the Museum’s care, and dressing the gown for new photography. Learn more about the delicate balance of preservation versus accessibility, as preparations are made for the gown to be temporarily exhibited next year in honor of The Charleston Museum’s 250th anniversary.
