On day one, tour Stonewall 50 at the New-York Historical Society to consider the historical significance of clothing in LGBTQ+ culture and history. On day two, visit Materials for the Arts and engage in hands-on, classroom-ready art-making activities using reusable materials from the warehouse to explore how fashion can be integrated to teach interdisciplinary history, art history, and visual arts lessons.
