200 Years Black Paper Dolls

The Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum - in Washington DC - is exhibiting the Black Paper Doll collection of Arabella Grayson until April 2007.

You'll see Topsey dolls from the 1860s, a Sally Hemings doll, to modern ones, such as Winnie Mandela, Grace Jones, Josephine Baker, and even Star Jones! The collection also includes pieces from the US as well as Britain, Canada, Germany, Italy and Sweden. Be sure to read The Examiner's, Robin Tierney review of the show or DeNeen L. Brown's Washington Post article. Enjoy!
