The Art of Mourning

Outside of Philadelphia is a little museum, The Museum of Mourning Arts, dedicated to the history and the culture of grief and the symbolic forms with which it has been expressed over the centuries. Love and loss is a theme often explored in art, but this museum focuses on intensely personal objects, such as mourning wear and Victorian memento moris. Neda Ulaby reports.
