Object Lesson |   | Fri. Dec. 6, 2019 | 7 – 7:30 pm | The Center for Art in Wood Museum Collection

Object Lesson is a monthly First Friday speaker series that will open wide the cases of the Center’s Museum Collection through the perspectives of individuals from the worlds of art, design, performance, community activism, education, and more, creating fresh dialogues about the Collection and its objects. The series invites the public for an up-close and personal experience in an informal, discursive setting that will encourage exploration of the many treasures in the Collection.

Jessica Eldredge is an artist working in Old City Philadelphia.  She is also Director of NLArts, a community arts organization in Northern Liberties that inspires children to be creative thinkers who value community. A graduate of the Winterthur Program in Early American Material Culture, Jessica loves looking at and thinking about objects and their stories.
