It’s that time of year to do some Spring Cleaning (remember your New Year’s Resolution to start clearing out….). Well, we have some added motivation for you. The Cornell Fashion and Textile Collection (one of Cornell’s hidden gems) is mounting an exhibit this coming Fall with the theme “Fashion and Freedom of Expression”, as part of the Cornell’s recently announced 2023-24 year focus on The Indispensable Condition: Freedom of Expression at Cornell.
This exhibit will display articles of clothing that were worn to make a statement. Think about that shirt you wore in 1971 to protest the War, or to promote rights of any and all sorts, or to just make a point that perhaps only you understood. If you can find that shirt, hat, or any article of clothing, take a picture and email it to Denise Green, Associate Professor, College of Human Ecology and Director of the Fashion & Textile Collection, at email@example.com. Note: Loaned or donated items are needed by August 15th.
Now go unpack that box of “treasures”….
