Mad Hatters - New York Hats and Hatmakers at City Lore Gallery


  • City Lore Gallery 56 East 1 Street New York, NY, 10003 United States

Our exhibit at City Lore has been extended to November 15!

Ellen-Christine, world renowned milliner and President of the Milliners Guild, will be giving a lecture, Every Hat Tells a Story, on September 22 from 7-8pm

Hatterday, a craft program for kids, will be hosted by City Lore on September 24.  

Mad Hatters showcases the identities that New Yorkers carve out for themselves by donning a simple piece of headware in a crowded city. With special attention to the City’s defining grassroots folk cultures, the exhibit pays tribute to NYC’s master milliners while also documenting and celebrating the men and women who proudly wear hats to express their cultural traditions or simply for the hell of it. The show features a series of special hats made for the show by the New York Milliners Guild, illustrating “New York hat-itude.” 

Presented in association with the Westchester Arts Council which staged the show “Hattitude” in 2015 at their White Plains Gallery.
