Politics at Home: Textiles as American History

Thursday, September 09, 2021
Location:  Ruth Davis Design Gallery, Nancy Nicholas Hall
*Note: actual end time may vary.*
Featuring work from the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection ranging from the 18th through the 21st centuries, this exhibition includes a range of domestic textiles that demonstrate how public discourses of American politics have always had a meaningful presence within the home. Through production, consumption, and conscious display of textiles, including quilts, pillowcases, furnishing fabric samples, handkerchiefs, and ornaments, objects in the home signal political beliefs and ideals.
