Famous silhouette artist Cindi Rose coming to Polk Home museum in Tennessee

Nationally known silhouette artist Cindi Harwood Rose will return as a special guest of the James K. Polk Home’s museum in Columbia, Tennessee from 9:45 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday, October 7th. A real celebrity and opportunity to get a lasting heirloom!

Sarah Polk’s music book, used when she was 14 years old, shown above, as pictured on display at Polk Presidential Hall’s exhibit “Sarah Polk: First Lady of Fashion” during Cindi’s past visit. “It is not known if the hand-inked book, dated 1818, was created by Sarah Polk or someone else,” curator Tom Price said. “But it does show she was familiar with the song ‘Hail to the Chief,’ pictured on the right-hand page. Interestingly, she began the tradition of using it as the theme song for the President of the United States.” Also pictured is Sarah Polk’s framed silhouette. Silhouettes were very popular in Polk’s day.
