    Cookbooks and the lives of women

    The Michener Museum in Doylestown is using cookbooks to honor women’s history. 

    Artist Kirby Fredenhall designed the exhibit to illustrate the everyday lives of women throughout the centuries. 

    “I have a photograph of my hands resting in a work-smoothed, limestone bowl near a Pueblo Indian cliff dwelling,” says Fredendall. “I remember crouching there, wondering what her hands looked like—the hands that ground the corn in that bowl, day after day, to make tortillas for her family.” 

    The exhibit debuts today and will be running well into July. Click here for more info.
