Organized by the Woodson Art Museum, "Stormy Kromer: Evolution of a Classic" puts a local spin on global headwear. From invention and evolution throughout a century, the stylish and durably designed Stormy Kromer hats are interwoven into Wisconsin culture. The lore is part of the lure. A pull-down ear band stitched to a baseball cap kept a train worker’s head warm and dry amid winter winds. From authentic originals to ever-evolving designs, the Stormy Kromer caps – along with fascinating archival material – celebrate the art of hat and headwear design.
