“A través de los años: Costa Rican History through Conceptual Apparel Design”, a graduate student thesis exhibition, runs from March 13th through March 24th. The general public and the university community are invited to attend an opening reception from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on Monday, March 13th, 2017.

“A través de los años” represents the socioeconomic transformation of Costa Rica over many centuries. Through the appropriation of information and knowledge about the country’s evolution, Katherine Rodriguez classified Costa Rica’s history into five socioeconomic periods, emphasizing the most relevant and inspirational elements from each one. Those elements were translated into digital design prints that, in combination with other textiles and mixed media techniques, were used for the development of five conceptual garments.

Katherine Rodriguez is a Fulbright student scholar pursuing a master of arts degree in the area of apparel and textile design.
