Student Exploration of Fashion History

The Indiana University Center of Art+Design is pleased to present VINTAGE IS THE NEW BLACK Student Exploration of Fashion History an exhibition featuring items by students created while exploring fashion history for an upper-level fashion history assignment taught in the Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design Department at IU.

The instructor, Dr. Ashley Hasty, applied a constructivist learning approach. Constructivism holds that curriculum is not isolated from the rest of our lives; learning is contextually informed by our existing beliefs and knowledge. Consistent with this approach, Dr. Hasty created an assignment allowing students to design and develop an interpretation of course material through projects related to their personal lives and career goals.

Dr. Hasty is a lecturer in Apparel Merchandising and Interior Design at Indiana University. Dr. Hasty received her Bachelor of Science in fashion marketing and management from Stephens College and her M.S. and PhD in textile and apparel management from the University of Missouri.

Painting: EXPANDED

The IU Center for Art+Design presents Painting: Expanded an exhibition featuring works by three American artists: Timothy Linn, Martha MacLeish, and Michael Rouillard, all work in diverse media that expands the physical and conceptual notions of painting.

These artists are pursuing unique and independent visions steeped in panting’s history and practice departing from the conventional to push the boundaries of their fine art practice. These exciting new works often portray various forms of art, architecture, theater, dance, and the limits of perception.
