The Unions Welcomes both the Missouri Historic Costume and Textile Collection and the artworks of Professor Mannella's Intermediate/Advanced Fibers Class!

It is a busy start to the new semester in 2017 as the Public Arts Collection at the Missouri Student Unions welcomes an exhibit of clothing from the 1960s from the Missouri Historic Costume and Textile Collection and an exhibit of baskets made by the Intermediate and Advanced Fibers class of Professor Pazia Mannella.

60s Savitar Style

The Missouri Historic Costume Textile Collection and Public Arts Collection teamed up to create an exhibit to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Missouri Historic Costume and Textile Collection that was begun in 1967 and now has a collection of over 6,000 apparel and textile artifacts. Images from the Savitar, the university's yearbook, illustrate the styles of clothing highlighted in the exhibit worn by MU students during the 1960's.

The exhibit will stay up until February 20, 2017 so be sure to stop by and visit it in the Lower Lair of the MU Student Center!
