The DAS toured the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library and enjoyed a tour of the exhibit, Paint, Pattern & People: Furniture of Southeastern Pennsylvania, 1725–1850, led by curators Wendy A. Cooper and Lisa Minardi.  The exhibition explored the diverse furniture of southeastern Pennsylvania and the people who made, owned, inherited, and collected it, and explored the cultures and creativity of the area’s people through 200 objects of furniture, fraktur, needlework, and paintings.
