How the Aloha Shirt Conquered the World
August 11, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for a talk on the Aloha shirt woven with Hawaiian history by Martha Denney and Lloyd Walker.
Martha Denney is Director Emerita of International Education at Colorado State University. Since her retirement she has been able to indulge her love of textiles and travel. Lloyd Walker retired from Civil Engineering at CSU after 30 years and became a dedicated student of history. In 1986 they began traveling to Hawaii and in 2013 they purchased a home on the Big Island so they could spend more time learning about the Islands. Martha curated an exhibit on Hawaii with Molly Eckman at the Global Village Museum that featured Hawaiian shirts as a way to tell the Hawaii’s story. Lloyd explains the history that led to Hawaii’s role in transforming how people all over the world dress. It is a fun and unexpected story. If registering on Wednesday, August 11, you can buy tickets before the event or call the museum but the online portal closes at 11:55pm on August 10th.
