A remarkable range of geography, tradition and technique is represented in the Museums' 'Textiles Collection.' Highlights include fine fashionable costume from the 18th century to the present, one of the most important collections of European tapestries in the United States and treasures from the Caroline and H. McCoy Jones Collection, including the most important group of Anatolian kilims outside Turkey and six outstanding Uzbek embroideries. Two recent additions to the collection are an elaborate Egungun costume, made by the Oyo subgroup of the Yoruba people, used in ceremonies that honor their ancestors, and a contemporary tapestry by Polish artist Magdalena Abakanowicz.
