Wool is one of the most commonly used fibers in the world and easily the most misunderstood. Wonder of Wool takes a captivating look at the significance of wool, giving you a new understanding and appreciation of this fascinating fiber.

Nature is the oldest and richest source of design inspiration. The objects in Nature by Design share a common characteristic: they are both artful and useful, functional and aesthetically pleasing. This exhibit explores the rise and decline of the great movements of art, from Classicism and Romanticism to Art Deco, and their impact on our culture, society, and economy.
