New HSRC Exhibitions

The September 2020 episode of “Crossroads of Rockland History” focused on the two new exhibitions on view now at the Historical Society of Rockland County (HSRC). Mariel Farlow and her daughter, Michele Lehtis, discussed the monumental sculpture “Being of Light—Image of the Human Soul.” We explored the true meaning of what may be the most controversial piece of public art in Rockland County with the artist herself and heard part of a poignant reaction to the controversy from the artist's daughter.

Then Jennifer Brooks, co-curator (with Christine Kowalski) of “Inside Out: Women, Fashion & The Fight for Suffrage,
 spoke about the use of highlights from the HSRC's permanent collection to address questions about how the fight for women’s suffrage changed fashion, and how women’s fashion—and lives—changed in response to suffrage. These exhibitions are on view now at the HSRC.
