Costume and Textiles Gallery

  • Junya Watanabe, designer, Dress (detail), 2008. Museum Purchase  2009.61.1
  • The Angelo Donghia Costume and Textiles Study Center and its companion gallery are dedicated to the study and creative interpretation of a broad range of objects by juxtaposing different cultures, time periods, and media. Such comparisons illustrate the ebb and flow of ideas, aesthetics, and techniques, issues integral to the history of design, craftsmanship, trade, and culture, as well as current artistic practice.
