The Textile Museum and the George Washington University announced 26 July 2011 an affiliation between The Textile Museum and The George Washington University.
“Responses have been overwhelming positive from all directions” says TM President Bruce Baganz to Jozan Magazine. He contimues “What else could anyone ever have wanted for the TM? Mission continuation, independence, new state of the art facilities, protection for the collection, higher intellectual opportunities, improved access to the collection. The affiliation between the TM and George Washington University achieves the aspirations of everyone with rug and textile interests”.
The new museum is scheduled to open in mid-2014 and will be located in The George Washington University’s Foggy Bottom campus.
