UPCYCLED! A Fashion & Textile Exhibition of Remaking and Reinventing

Friday, February 9, 2024 to Thursday, March 28, 2024

The Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery in the Department of Textiles, Merchandising, and Fashion Design invites high school students to showcase their textile art and fashion designs! Students can submit textile art including apparel design, fiber art, and surface design work. This exhibition seeks to promote and celebrate the creative work of young artists, designers, and makers working with textile or fiber materials or techniques.

Join us for a reception on March 27th at the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery from 5-7pm where we will announce winners. Get a chance to talk with the artists and enjoy some light refreshments.


We have provided schools and teachers with a unit lesson plan and curriculum, “Upcycled: Exploring Textiles & Art,” developed by our faculty that is focused on upcycling for fashion design and art students. Schools with limited access to materials can use this option to teach their students. All participants in the program are eligible to show their work in the gallery!
