Virtual Member Mission: The Fabric of Our Lives

October 29, 2020

Cotton plays an important role throughout our world, but how did this plant weave its way into our daily lives? How did this humble boll become the latest fashion? And, how did technology enable humans to advance this plant’s uses for everything from clothing to sheets and bath towels?

In this virtual Member Mission, join team members from the GROW Gallery as they thread through cotton’s rich (and at times terrible) history to discover how it became the fabric of our lives.

Then, get ready for an at-home activity for you and your family.
