On April 19th, 2017, Museum Textile Services staff made the trip to Bowdoin College in Brunswick, Maine, for the opening of "Threads of Change: Clothing and Identity in the North" at the Peary-MacMillan Arctic Museum. Included in the exhibit are twelve of our Andover Figures® manikins, which were skillfully padded out and arranged by the museum's collections staff.
