Stuff about Stuff

May 9, 2018 at 6:30 PM | Woodbury, NJ | Gloucester County Historical Society
You can tell a lot about people from their stuff. You can tell a lot about a society too. The things we own, make, and desire give physical expression to our beliefs and values – even in ways we might not be conscious of. Focusing on the home, this program will take us on a tour through American history to demonstrate how cultural values are present in household furnishings. Then, we will apply this practice to ourselves to discover what our possessions reveal about us.
