Civic Virtue Gallery

Posted -


You’ve probably seen the fliers of supermodel, Karlie Kloss donning an American flag scarf on her head around campus. The model did a photo-shoot specifically for the costume gallery at Stephens College’s current exhibit.

As of September 21, the Civic Virtue exhibit has been underway at the costume gallery. The exhibit features pieces of clothing dating from the 1800s to present-day, all of which are red, white or blue.

The gallery is open 5:30-8:30 p.m. on Thursdays and 12:00 p.m.- 3 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Costume gallery curator, Monica McMurry, said that even though the gallery took a lot of work and long hours to set up, it’s one of her favorite shows the gallery has put on due to the garments’ classic, Americana style.

“I think red, white and blue are timeless,” McMurry said.

Civic Virtue runs until December 9 in Stephen’s Historic Costume Gallery, located on the Mezzanine Floor of Lela Raney Wood Hall and is open to the public.
