The Department of Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design is hosting “Crafting Culture: Women and the Business of Textiles in Nebraska,” in partnership with the museum and the Asian Community and Cultural Center.

Crafting Culture celebrates both past and present contributions of entrepreneurial women to Nebraska’s textile and clothing industries. The exhibition presents textile-related crafts made by contemporary women—both immigrant and long-term Lincoln residents—alongside historical artifacts and images from the Nebraska History Museum’s collection. Interactive features of the exhibition invite broader audiences to develop their own ideas for textile products, and related public programming extends opportunities for cross-cultural exchange to members of the community.

The exhibit runs April 12 to July 13, 2019, with the grand opening night at 5-7p.m. on April 12 with fun activities for visitors to enjoy.

The admission to the museum is free. More information about the exhibit can be found at https://history.nebraska.gov/visit/crafting-culture-women-and-business-textiles-nebraska

Additional Public Info:
Free Admission. Open Saturdays 1:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m.
