Sunny Monday is Wash Day


New Signage for the Museum’s Hand’s On Exhibit and Outdoor Wash Day Programming

As you may already know, at one time, doing the wash required a team of helpers and a full day of work.  Throughout the summer of 2013, artist Jennifer Chernecki worked to develop some new signage to show exactly what Sunny Monday entailed. What resulted was a large scale coroplast sign created to compliment our existing Wash Day Hand’s On program of wash tubs, wash boards and plungers, wringers, irons, sock stretchers and a drying rack.

This large poster was created to be used with our mobile Wash Day program.

The original piece of artwork was then fitted into an antique window (found at the ever helpful Jack’s Used Building Supplies) and installed into the Wash Day Exhibit area of the museum’s kitchen.

Watch for us next year at the fair, Pitt Meadows Day or on some sunny weekend and get ready to work!
