Join us to learn about floral design in fashion with Gayle Stege, the curator of The Decorative Art Center of Ohio's current exhibition, Flower Power: Flora in Fashion. Flower Power features artifacts from OSU's Historic Costume and Textiles Collection.

In Person registration is requested. Online registration is required to receive the Zoom link. 

The Decorative Art Center of Ohio's current exhibit, Flower Power: Flora in Fashion, explores the relationship humankind has with its natural environment – specifically, how we adorn our bodies with botanical elements from head to toe. Creators of textiles, garments, gloves, shoes, purses, hats and buttons have found inspiration in flowers, vines, trees, fruits, leaves, nuts and almost every type of vegetation. Manufacturers stretch the limits of creativity as they produce apparel that reflects the colors, textures, and shapes of flowers, and shows the universal beauty of botanical elements. Designers’ conceptions of floral elements echo the art and social movements of their time, place and culture. Artisans translate those concepts into garments and accessories that can be worn to express one’s personal style and individuality.

This exhibition displays artifacts in OSU’s Historic Costume & Textiles Collection from several continents that span the 20th century. The galleries are arranged counter clockwise into color schemes that reflect a stroll from early spring through late summer. We invite you to wander our garden and experience the tranquility and power of floral design.

​​Exhibitions presented in collaboration with the Historic Costume and Textiles Collection at the Ohio State University with support from the Fox Foundation, Inc.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
