Field Trip to Museum of Anthropology

6 April, 2012

Last week the students in the History of Textile Art class, together with their instructor, Tisha Singer, went on a field trip to the Museum of Anthropology  to view their collection of historical textiles.

The M.O.A has hundreds of textiles from all over the world and we were very fortunate to see first-hand examples of textiles that we have been studying this semester.
