My name is Adam Hayes and I am a junior at the University of Cincinnati, majoring in Fine Arts in the school of DAAP. I was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. Throughout my college career, my interdisciplinary passions have guided me into an extreme interest in pursuing a career in the field of curating historical garments. So naturally when I read the description for this course, I had to sign up! This course has been an incredible opportunity to explore the work the many aspects that go into preserving and exhibiting a collection of historical garments through working hands on with the UC Bonnie Cashin garments themselves and being given the opportunity to meet and learn from professionals within the field.
