UPCOMING EVENTS
SHOW MUSEUMS SUPPORT WITH YOUR PRESENCE

America in the Making: Lewis and Clark, 1938 by Newell Convers Wyeth
Erasure and Invisibility: Columbus Day and the Representation of American Indians in Art

OCT 9 | 6-7PM | BRUNNIER ART MUSEUM

Join the conversation as we discuss the national narratives of Columbus Day, their parallel representation in art, and their role in shaping the public's ideas and (mis)understandings of American Indians. When these narratives are contrasted with artwork and images of American Indians made by American Indians, how might our understanding change? Using works of art from the permanent collection by N.C. Wyeth, Juane Quick-to-See Smith, Dan Namingha, and others, we will explore how the national narrative on American Indians continues to evolve. The evening will start with a panel discussion, followed by questions from the audience.

MoMA Plunges Headfirst Into Fashion

The New York Times article reads: "  Items: Is Fashion Modern?" is an intense game of catch-up and only the second exhibition in the Modern's history devoted to clothing design. Its predecessor - "Are Clothes Modern?" - was organized in 1944, by Bernard Rudofsky, a provocative architect and social historian who posited that most clothing was "anachronistic, irrational and harmful."

Interested in fashion closer to home? 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.
