Abstract

In spring 2013, the Textiles and Clothing Museum (TCM), Iowa State University unveiled the exhibit, "Treasures of the TCM." The exhibit was a culmination of 2 years of preparation by the two curators and a host of other individuals and organizations. The preparation and promotion of the exhibit, including lessons learned along the way, will be beneficial to curators, collection managers, and staff of college and university historic textile and clothing collections.
