|Sally Queen & Associates,
in partnership with Costume Society of America, is collecting data
for a future publication of public collections that preserve historic
cloth & clothing. This publication will be a directory of North American
collections of clothing, textiles, accessories, uniforms, and costumes.
The purpose of the Americas' Closets project is to define the community
of collections and not to evaluate the current condition of the artifacts
or their storage. By defining this public community of 1,000 + collections
in an accessible and affordable publication, we will increase opportunities
for visitation, research, grants, and collaboration.
Listing in the directory will include Costume Society of America
members as well as non-CSA members. To date, we have located collections
in museums, universities and colleges, and historic houses and sites.
To include your collection in the publication, please enter
the America's Closets survey.
