Kent State University Museum Displays Garments “Inside Out” for New Exhibit

A new exhibition of historic and couture clothing at the Kent State University Museum will focus on the hidden interiors and construction of garments. Appropriately, the show is dubbed “Inside Out: Revealing Clothing’s Hidden Secrets.” “Inside Out” will be on view at the museum from March 12, 2015 – Feb. 14, 2016.

“Inside Out” curator Sara Hume, Ph.D., also will lead a special program offering further insight into the exhibit on Wednesday, March 18, from 2-4 p.m. in the museum’s Murphy Auditorium. Refreshments will be served following the presentation. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved through March 13 by calling 330-672-0300.

The pieces on display span the 18th through 20th centuries and include both men’s and women’s wear. What they all have in common, says Hume, is their beautiful representation of accurately preserved interiors.

The Kent State University Museum is located at 515 Hilltop Drive, at the corner of East Main and South Lincoln streets in Kent. The museum is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; 10 a.m. to 8:45 p.m. on Thursday; and noon to 4:45 p.m. on Sunday.
