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. Read about these methods here.
