Textiles and Clothing Museum

The Textiles and Clothing Museum is an interactive learning environment dedicated to the concepts of visual and object-based learning. The museum collects, documents, preserves, interprets, and exhibits the teaching collection. The collection is accessible to students, scholars, and academic researchers and is also made available to public audiences through exhibitions and programming.

Current Exhibition

The Textiles and Clothing Museum’s Mary Alice Gallery is closed until further notice due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus. In the meantime, you can view the online catalog from our latest exhibition Collegiate Fashion and Activism: Black Women’s Styles on the College Campus.

Upcoming Exhibitions

We are currently working on a safe way to install an exhibition and open the gallery due to COVID-19. Please check back soon for more information.
