Mounting a Costume Exhibit: A Didactic Approach to Teaching Costume Museum Management

Abstract

Our apparel program is fortunate to have a large historic costume collection, and access to an exhibition gallery. We have a class on costume museum management. It is an elective, and low enrollments in the class have been a problem. Until recently the course had primarily been taught through standard readings and lectures, followed by some work with garments in the collection.
