Through March: Columbus Museum exhibits and activities

The Columbus Museum highlights "Parasols, Purses and Petticoats: Costume Accessories from the Permanent Collection," and “Homer in America” exhibits this month. Winslow Homer was an American landscape painter and printmaker. He is recognized as a dominant figure in 19th-century American realism. All of Homer’s most popular illustrations are included in this exhibition of 125 wood engravings produced over a period of nearly three decades. "Parasols, Purses and Petticoats" examines the purposes accessories serve other than to beautify an outfit. It includes fans, parasols, purses, jewelry, bonnets, capes, shoes, shawls and foundation garments.
