A Hairy Situation: Looking at the Style of Hair in Fine Art

This week we'll journey through the museum to check out a variety of objects with very different styles of hair. How do different cultures and time periods use hair to define their people? What can we tell about a person from the type of hair they have? We'll check out a range of different work pertaining to these issues and try to figure out what their meaning may be.
