Thursday, November 18, 2021 at 5:00pm to 7:00pm

Knight Library, Browsing Room
1501 Kincaid Street, Eugene, OR

Join us for this opening event with Amy Cohen, exhibit curator. Explore the rich and surprising history of women and tattoos on America’s Pacific Coast. From the working-class Tattooed Ladies who performed in circus sideshows to the upper-class inked women who helped popularize the tattoo craze; visitors will discover the largely unknown history of women and tattoos through photographs, personal histories, and artifacts.

The exhibit is located in Special Collections and University Archives. The opening event will be in the Knight Library Browsing Room.
