Cooling Off with Style: Hand Fans From the Collection
This exhibition will feature several hand fans from The Grace Museum’s permanent collection. Fans were not only a functional accessory to keep the wearer cool on the hottest of days, they were also an important style piece in a woman’s wardrobe. Hand fans have a long-storied history going back thousands of years into biblical and ancient Chinese and Japanese times. Come visit The Grace to learn about the history of hand fans and enjoy several examples of beautifully handcrafted fans from around the world.
