Accessorizing at the Eustis Estate

Jun 11, 2018

Guests at Head to Toe opening reception with CEO Carl R. Nold




More than sixty guests attended the opening reception for Head to Toe: Hat and Shoe Fashions from Historic New England at the Eustis Estate.

Curator Laura Johnson welcomed members, donors, volunteers, and staff with brief remarks and an overview about the exhibition. She was on hand in the galleries to answer questions and to hear many stories about a guest’s favorite hat and shoes or memories of a relative “decked out” for a special occasion.

Visit the exhibition at the Eustis Estate Wednesdays through Sundays from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

This exhibition is supported in part by our lead sponsors, Susan P. Sloan and Arthur D. Clarke, with additional support from Coby Foundation Ltd. and Dr. Janina A. Longtine.

Head to Toe is part of Mass Fashion, a consortium of eight cultural institutions that explores and celebrates the many facets of the culture of fashion in Massachusetts. Discover the wide array of fashions, and the stories behind them, on view in the Commonwealth. In addition to Historic New England, the partners include Concord Museum, Fuller Craft Museum, Massachusetts Historical Society, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Old Sturbridge Village, Peabody Essex Museum, and Trustees of Reservations. Visit massfashion.org.
