Carl Sandburg Home “Dressing for the Occasion” Clothing Exhibit

Carl Sandburg Home “Dressing for the Occasion” Clothing Exhibit

Carl Sandburg Home National Historic Site presents a new exhibit called “Dressing for the Occasion: Mid-Century Sandburg as Celebrity and Family Man,” which is part of the Sandburg Home tour, and features clothing and accessories from both the park’s permanent collection and loaned items from the Sandburg family.

“Dressing for the Occasion” offers visitors a window into the style, culture, and feel of mid-century America.  The family’s clothing and accessories weave together the roles of Carl Sandburg as a prominent writer, celebrity, father, and husband.  This temporary exhibit offers an exciting opportunity for the public to view objects that are normally in storage or in the possession of Sandburg family members.  Tours of the Sandburg Home are offered daily from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm.  Tickets are available first come, first served, each day from the visitor information area in the ground level of the Sandburg Home.

Nearly every room in the historically furnished house museum will be included in the exhibit. Visitors will see the characteristic scarves Carl Sandburg wore as he played his guitar and sang folk songs to entertain his family and guests, the dress Lilian Sandburg wore to meet President Lyndon B. Johnson, and many other mid-century pieces worn by the Sandburgs and their daughters. Historic photographs, paired with the clothing, will provide context.
