Textile Museum, Washington DC, March 2015

The Textile Museum reopened in March 2015 as part of the George Washington University Museum and The Textile Museum on GW's main campus in Foggy Bottom. The museum was founded by collector George Hewitt Myers in 1925 and was originally housed in two historic buildings in D.C.'s Kalorama neighborhood: the Myers family home, designed by John Russell Pope, and an adjacent building designed by Waddy Wood.

The museum's mission is to expand public knowledge and appreciation – locally, nationally and internationally – of the artistic merits and cultural importance of the world’s textiles. The Museum is now housed at the George Washington University.

I had the prevelige of attending the oprning night ceremony and I really enjoyed the event.
