October 3, 2015 - July 26, 2016

facialhair_intextimageBeards, mustaches, and other forms of facial hair vary widely, depending on cultures and time periods in history. From the Old Dutch that became popular in the mid-1800s to the Handlebar that was seen frequently from the late 1800s to the 1920s to the Pencil that was sported from the 1920s-1960s, facial hair has changed frequently, fearlessly, and, sometimes, frenetically from one decade to the next. The exhibit chronicles the styles and the ways men (and sometimes women) have seemingly embraced them, proudly sporting their facial furniture, from the handsome to the outright ridiculous.
