    Scarf Diaries: A Pay About Women, Life & Entanglements
    April 19, 2015
    2:00 PM
    Location: Jersey City Museum

    Scarf Diaries features Antoinette Ellis-Williams performing one-act vignettes about the lives of different women, sharing their loves, heartaches, desperation and triumphs. Women's scarves serve as visual conduits of complex narratives of religion, culture, sexuality, work, childbirth, mourning, sickness, beauty and celebration. They mark rites of passage in public ways and for others declare independence or tributes of honor. Women throughout the world wrap, drape, cover, adorn and hide themselves with scarves as symbols of private convents, embellishment, joyfulness, pain, or ugliness. Join Antoinette as she leads the audience through the many stories hidden in a closet full of scarves. This is a free event, but space is limited. RSVP: Braun Wright (201)200-3524.
