Period Corsets® is delighted to support the arts and education.

We recently made a donation to the Fernback Museum of Natural History in Atalnta Georgia. Pictured below is our pink brocade coutil Julia c. 1860 corset in the exhibit. Please read more about the Reflections of Culture Exhibition below.

Quoted from the Fernbank Museum:

Reflections of Culture draws from Fernbank’s permanent collections, including the Dorothy Methvin McClatchey Collection, to showcase the fascinating similarities among cultures throughout the world and the different ways of expressing cultural information through the things people create and wear.  

Reflections of Culture focuses on the most personally expressive of those objects—personal adornment. People around the world decorate their bodies with clothing, jewelry and various forms of body modification, including piercing, scarring, painting, shaping and tattooing. Personal adornment allows people to express their cultural identity and provides a particularly effective means of communicating social, political and economic information about themselves and the society in which they live.

Discover what culture is and how it is expressed through a variety of contemporary and historic objects. Artifacts are placed alongside captivating photographs, which provide a context for how the objects are worn, by whom and why. Educational interactives throughout the gallery allow visitors to further explore how personal adornment is used to express culture.
