Textiles and the Environment
Textiles and the Environment presents the first phase of the Museum’s re-imagining of our former gallery of global textiles into a welcoming community space for visitors who will be active participants in dynamic cultural experiences inspired by collection objects. This exhibition highlights how a selection of handmade textiles from around the world is intertwined with nature and the health of the planet; it explores the life cycle of a textile in relation to sustainability, and daily life.
