Conversations with a Curator: Laura Bragg with Jennifer McCormick
For the month of March, The Charleston Museum will dedicate a special temporary exhibit in honor of Women’s History Month: Laura Bragg: Librarian, Educator and Director of The Charleston Museum. As the first (and only) female Director of the Museum, Laura Bragg left a lasting legacy that is not only felt in Charleston, but museums across the country. For the exhibit, a number of objects from the Laura Bragg Collection will be on display, including a “Bragg Box” one of her most innovated educational tools used to teach children from every background.
Join our Chief of Collections, Jennifer McCormick, to take a closer look at one of the Museum’s (and Charleston’s) most notable and influential women. This talk is free for members and free with admission.
