The Midwest Region of the Costume Society of America Symposium hosted by SAIC's Fashion Resource Center showcases presentations on "Uncommon Beauty," topics that emerged from seeing beauty with an open mind and an open eye. Papers and interactive Ideas Theatre presentations include inquiry into the urban, the "fringe," the utilitarian, the ethnic, the diverse, the modern, and the very individual. Events will include visits to two major costume exhibitions with insight from their curators and behind-the-scenes looks at two hands-on university study collections in our world-class city.
