You’re invited to a fashion-forward celebration and reception for our current exhibit, Cartoon Couture! This exhibit features original cartoon art as well as costumes from the OSU Historic Costume and Textiles Collection, and traces the history of fashion in cartoons and comics dating back through the 1700s.

We’ll be celebrating in style, and the costume theme is DECADES! Break out your bell bottoms, fedoras, letter jackets, flapper dresses and more, and join us for:

• Light refreshments and a cash bar
• A paper doll-making activity
• Curators’ tour at 6 pm
… and a few surprises!

This event is FREE, family-friendly, and open to the public.
