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.
“Tekunikku: The Art of Japanese Textile Making” isan exploration of Japan’s iconic textile design methods featuring fabrics and garments from alumna Catherine Cerny’s extensive collection. The exhibition opens the UC Davis’ Design Museum’s 2018-2019 season runningthrough Dec. 9.
A highlight of the exhibition is its installation which evokes the aesthetic of a traditional Japanese market where many of the objects were purchased.
