Playing Dress Up: How Kids See Clothing

(Community)

Location: Historic Costume Gallery, mezzanine level of Lela Raney Wood Hall

Hours for the gallery are Saturdays and Sundays, noon-3 p.m.; Wednesdays, noon-1 p.m.; and Thursdays, 5:30-8:30 p.m.
An opening reception will be held on Feb. 27 from noon-3 p.m.

When we get dressed and put items on, how do children perceive that clothing? How do kids make sense of who people are, based on what they see, without words? That’s what the spring gallery exhibit is about—the language of clothing.

The exhibit explores the signs and symbols of dress by creating vingettes of clothing—the nuclear family, the cowboy and cow girl, fairy tale-inspired clothing. The show also explores the world of work with uniforms of service men and women, male and female nurses, police officers and fire fighters. Representing the children are girls’ and boys’ scouting uniforms.

To fully explore how children see clothing, the gallery invited students form the Children’s School at Stephens College to explore the exhibit and write and draw about what the clothing said to them. Their stories and drawings will be an essential component of the exhibit. Furthering the theme, the show will include a dress up and photo area for children who tour the show.

Companion displays will include dress from the 1920s, the decade that saw the founding of the Children’s School, now celebrating 90 years; and a tribute to the ’30s style of the Kit Kittridge figure from the popular American Girl book series.
