Dark Curiosities: Gothic Timepieces Through History

An exhibit and Halloween lecture series at the National Watch and Clock Museum.

When we think of gothic things, our mind immediately goes to a dark and stormy castle out of some horror novel. Yet, the term “gothic” has been around for centuries and refers to more than just a faraway castle. Gothic can be anything from a style of design in architecture, a subculture of dress, and even artwork. The exhibit Dark Curiosities: Gothic Timepieces through History will follow the history of the gothic movement as it relates to horology, the study of time. We will look at design, history, mourning art, and more.
