“Around the World in 80 Hats,” is an art and cultural exhibit of ceremonial and utilitarian hats from six continents! The exhibit, tailored to young children and adults alike, features hands-on interpretive centers and will be augmented with performances and activities which heighten the visitor experience. Featured in the exhibit are approximately 60 international hats from the Linda Weston Collection, 15 vintage dress hats from Friends of Fashion in Chassell, and vintage and new utilitarian hats.
The Linda Weston Collection
For over twenty years, Michigander Linda Weston traveled the world, bartering and buying hats along the way. She has visited 120 countries on 6 continents. "Around the World in 80 Hats" features Linda's hats and the stories which go with them! Linda has graciously loaned her exhibit to RPM. Visitors are allowed to try on several of the hats in the collection.
