A Look Back: Hair Art, Rice County
Sue Garwood discusses the history and tradition of “hairwork,” artwork made from human hair. The Rice County Historical Society has several pieces, two of which are on display. One of those also is a family tree of sorts for the Winkley family of Faribault; it includes the name of each family member who contributed hair to the art piece.
