View images from this exhibition.
This is an exhibition showcasing a grant project funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The grant helped support the digital photography of artifacts that could be used to teach history in accordance with Ohio’s curriculum for grades 8-12, and offer workshops to teachers to provide them with information and resources to create lesson plans using the digital images. The exhibition will feature five history lesson areas: Early American Republic 1770s-1820, Civil War, turn of the century consumerism, the Great Depression and WWII and 1960-70s innovation. Wireless access to the museum’s Fashion2fiber website will be available in the gallery via ipads and personal devices to retrieve information regarding artifacts not included in the exhibition due to space. http://fashion2fiber.osu.edu
