Art of Period Dress featured on MeTV, Crossroads Video

The magic of using authentic clothing to transform 21st century historians to realistic 18th century New Jerseyans was captured on video this fall at Crossroads’ fall conference, the Art of Period Dress.

Dozens of historical interpreters participated in hands on workshops with professionals including  Rebecca Fifield, Head of Collection Management for the Special Collections at The New York Public Library, Andrew Kirk, Hatter, Hatter and Artificer for HM 17th Regiment of Foot in America, Eliza West, Lois F. McNeil Fellow in the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture, Kirsten Hammerstrom, Curator and Material Culture Specialist, Carrie Fellows, Executive Director, Hunterdon County Cultural and Heritage Commission, and Asher Lurie, and David Niescior, both senior historical interpreters at the Old Barracks Museum in Trenton, NJ.

A segment on the conference aired on MeTV’s Jersey Matters with Larry Mente. Crossroads has also produced a brief documentary on the conference, available on our YouTube channel.
