Enhancing the teaching and research activities of the Department of Design, the UC Davis Design Museum explores how design shapes, improves and makes economically viable the objects, technology and environments we use, inhabit and experience every day.
The UC Davis Design Museum is a founding adopter of the Green Museums Accord. The Accord is a set of five principles that propel museums to become environmental leaders, and is administered by the California Association of Museums and the Green Museums Initiative.

The Red Dress® is the national symbol for raising awareness of heart disease as the leading killer of women. Cardiovascular disease kills a woman every minute, more than all cancers combined, yet is largely preventable through the adoption of healthy lifestyles.
In 2010, the Department of Design entered into a unique partnership with the UC Davis Women’s Cardiovascular Medicine Program to campaign for women’s heart health awareness. This exhibition showcases 18 red dresses from the UC Davis Red Dress Collection created by design students.
