New Threads EXHIBIT

    • Showcasing the Avenir Museum’s most recent acquisitions, New Threads examines what makes textile or apparel objects “museum worthy” for acceptance into our collection. Fall 2018 features a breadth of garments and flat textiles such as: a tapestry demonstrating both pulled warp and slit-weave techniques, a complete World War II 17th Airborne Division gliderman's uniform donated by its original owner who went on to become a professor of veterinary medicine at CSU, and a traditional embroidered cloth baby carrier of the minority Miao people of China.
