Making hats in Art Adventures

In December, Art Adventures was all about hats. We searched The Cummer’s permanent collection for hats worn by subjects in our permanent collection.

Mosaic with Mask of Silenus, Roman, 1st century A.D., stone tesserae and cement, 12 1/4 x 12 1/4 x 2 1/2, Morton R. Hirschberg Memorial Fund, AP 1990.19.1

Viewing Mosaic with Mask of Silenus, Roman and Cafe L’Avenue by Richard Emil Miller (see below), among others, gave students ideas for designing their own hats with colors, ribbons, flowers and feathers made from paper. Catch these students (pictured above) modeling their new wears.
