Partial salary for ten museum and library staff positions to develop a virtual collection and exhibit on the seven-decade history of the university museum of clothing and textile design.

This project forms a collaborative team with the Avenir Museum of Design and Merchandising and Colorado State University (CSU) Libraries to leverage university resources to fund existing positions for humanities workers involved in the development and realization of the virtual exhibition, "Threads of our Community: A History of the Avenir." and to prevent disruption of this project because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The exhibition traces the growth of the Avenir Museum from its beginnings as a small teaching collection in the 1950s to its current form as a state-of-the-art museum facility with a collection of approximately 25,000 historic clothing and textile artifacts. This project engages the public in learning about the importance of university collections not only for students, but also for fostering meaningful connections between campus and community.
