Since 1992, the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection has proudly sponsored an annual lecture series in honor of Ruth Ketterer Harris, the Collection’s first curator. The lecture series has featured a diverse range of specialists with broad public appeal including textile historians, contemporary artists, museum curators, scholars, and collectors ― all of whom have contributed to an enhanced understanding and appreciation of textiles. The Harris Lecture is free and open to the public. Sign up for HLATC’s email list to receive announcements for this and other opportunities.
