The Fabric of Memory: The Cone Mill Villages

Culminating years of work on Greensboro’s textile mill villages, students created a permanent exhibition in a gallery within the newly redeveloped Revolution Mill, once the largest producer of flannel cloth in the world. Drawing on oral interviews, the exhibition focused on the life experiences of the mill workers and their families. Students researched, wrote, and designed the exhibition, collaborating with the firm Design Dimension of Raleigh to create the final installation.
