Name: Of the Earth: Stories of Women in North Dakota
Date: June 6, 2021
Time: 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM CDT
This presentation will be lead by Camilla Morrison, a costume designer and North Dakota Council on the Arts fellowship recipient. Witness Morrison's unique design process as it explores themes of womanhood, such as aging, motherhood, joy, and sadness. Morrison will share costumes custom-created with painting and dyeing techniques that blend visual art and costume design. This program is related to the temporary exhibit "Fashion & Function: North Dakota Style," which showcases the everyday fashions of North Dakotans shaped by elements such as weather, career choices, cultural traditions, available resources, and pop culture. This program is part of the State Historical Society of North Dakota's Special Saturdays and Sensational Sundays are free cultural programs that include a variety of lectures, concerts, movies, and tours. This costume design workshop and presentation are supported in part by a grant from the North Dakota Council on the Arts, which receives funding from the state Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts.
