Pennsylvania Ag Connection - 11/29/2023

Did you know that safflower petals, coal tar, hydrangea branches and even mud have been used to add color to clothing? Learn more about these everyday items and the historical processes used to bring color to the world by attending “Dyestuff: Historical Materials of Color,” a hands-on lecture hosted by Penn State’s Pasto Agricultural Museum.

From 6 to 7:30 p.m. Dec. 6, the public is invited to examine samples of fibers, cloth, dyebaths and the resultant colors. The lecture will cover modern interpretations of historical dye recipes and techniques from around the globe.

Leading the lecture will be Sarah Rich, associate professor of art history and co-curator of the exhibition, “Sad Purple and Mauve: A History of Dye-Making,” on view through Jan. 15, 2024, in the Eberly Family Special Collections Library, 104 Paterno Library, on the University Park campus.
