October is Global Awareness Month

TWU is celebrating October as Global Awareness Month and will conduct a variety of events and activities to promote TWU’s Global Connections Initiative.

“Global Connections Through Dress” will be offered on the fourth floor of the Old Main Building until Nov. 1.

The TWU Fashion and Textiles Department will display global dress from five different countries throughout the month of October.

Each Monday a new display case with a new country will be made available for viewing by the university community at no charge. Displays will include general information about the country and apparel production within the country and traditional dress worn within the country.

“Celebrating Dia de los Muertos [Day of the Dead]” will be offered on the first floor of the Blagg Huey Library through Oct. 31. Curated by the TWU Woman’s Collection staff, this display features an elaborate altar celebrating Day of the Dead and All Soul’s Day.

The community is invited to honor family and friends who have passed with photographs, notes and letters. Items in the exhibit include photographs and artifacts from the Woman’s Collection.

The TWU Music Ensemble Showcase will present “Latin Rhythms” at the Margo Jones Performance Hall at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.
