"Teaching with Textiles: Collections in the Classroom and the Community" exhibition

    • Showcasing student research projects of objects from the Avenir Museum's permanent collection and presenting content from the Historic Textiles undergraduate course, this exhibition furthers the Avenir Museum's mission of teaching all of our community, within and beyond the classroom, through the lens of historic textiles and clothing. Visitors will learn more about what it means to have a teaching collection, the role of a campus museum to teach both the students and the larger community, and the importance of interpreting textiles and clothing from an inclusive perspective.
