From traditional textiles to contemporary wearable art, this exhibition highlights significant artifacts that have inspired some of the teaching and research activities of the Design Program. The UC Davis Design Collection has grown in tandem with design, and demonstrates the evolving attitudes toward conserving, researching, and interpreting material culture in today’s multifaceted world.

This annual installation, timed to coincide with University Picnic Day, is a lively survey of student talent and creativity that reflects the multi-disciplinary breadth of the Design Program’s course work.
As part of the past year’s 2007-08 season, Year of Eco-exhibitions, the Design Museum presented the on-going exhibition, Sustainable Practice: A Model for Museum Design. Supported by the Campus Sustainability Grant Program, Design Museum Director, Professor Timothy McNeil leads the way in changing museum practices to incorporate new materials and methods to reduce the eco-foot print that presentation environments create.
