The Avalon Project: Salmon, Seiners, and Life on the Sound
Available for installation in 2017
Developed for the Gig Harbor BoatShop and in partnership with the Department of Natural Resources, this exhibit will highlight the story of the Avalon, a 1929 purse seiner built by the Skansie Brothers Shipbuilders in Gig Harbor, Washington, and the story of salmon fishing in the Pacific Northwest. Featuring artifacts collected from the Avalon prior to its deconstruction, the exhibit will give visitors a unique sense of how these early fishing boats operated and the stories of men and women who spent their lives at sea. A central feature of the exhibit will be the pilot house of the Avalon, painstakingly restored and reconstructed by the skilled boatbuilders and woodworkers at the Gig Harbor BoatShop.
The Hostess With the Mostest!
Available for installation September 2016
Based on a collection of vintage aprons dating between 1940-1970, this fun exhibit looks at the role of hostessing and the apron-as-accessory phenomena that took root in the 1800s and peaked in the 1950s. With insights from noted interior designer and “Entertaining is Fun” author Dorothy Draper, we’ll compare “emergency entertaining rations” from 1941 with today as well as explore the roots of hostessing etiquette.
