The vitality of orange is all around us – in fashion, art, advertising, sports, and nature. ORANGE invites you to consider the vibrancy and psychology of the color orange in fashion design, as one cultural aspect of the 20th century — a color embraced by Colorado Agricultural College (forerunner to CSU), the Roaring '20s, the counterculture '60s, Yves Saint Laurent, and, the Denver Broncos!
Come hear how orange — the color of vitality and the unconventional — appeared in broad pendulum swings across 20th-century fashion, and learn the back stories of the bold apparel featured in the current exhibition. Why is "Aggie Orange" back in a big way?!
