Hagley After Hours: Mother’s Day Celebration – Women Inventors
In honor of Mother’s Day, we invite you to join Hagley curators on Friday, May 12, as we dive more deeply into the patent model collection focusing specifically on women inventors. Women in the 19th century were inventing in the same industries as men but are often left out of the narrative of the history of invention. Curators will uncover why this might be, and how it has shaped the world of invention today.
Light refreshments will be served. Space is limited and we encourage early reservations. One-hour tour and discussion included.
Hagley After Hours ticket price is $5 for members and $15 for nonmembers.
