MHS Teams with Project Runway Alumni to Launch Inaugural 'Threads'
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), February 16, 2019 - The Missouri Historical Society introduces Threads: History Never Looked So Haute, a new biannual cocktail party and runway show that is a unique merger of history and fashion.

The inaugural Threads event will be held April 13, 2019, at the Missouri History Museum. Threads is a fundraiser to benefit the exhibitions, collections and programs of the Missouri Historical Society, a 501c(3) charitable organization.

For the inaugural Threads, The Missouri Historical Society has invited Project Runway alumni and local university fashion students to create haute couture designs that are inspired by items from the Missouri Historical Society's textile collection. The designs will be debuted at the Threads runway show.

With more than 18,000 pieces of clothing and accessories, the Missouri Historical Society houses one of the most extensive textile collections in the country. Pieces in the collection date from the late 18th century to the present and include men's, women's and children's clothing, accessories and household textiles.

Threads will begin with a pre-show cocktail party for VIP guests. All Threads guests will experience a unique history-inspired runway show, followed by a dessert reception. VIP tickets will be available for $500. General admission tickets will be available for $175. Tickets go on sale in March 2019.

After the Threads Runway Show, the new designs created by Project Runway stars and fashion students from local universities will be installed in an atrium show on the lower level of the Missouri History Museum. The Threads atrium show is free and open to the public April 13, 2019, through July 14, 2019.

The Field House Museum's exhibition, "Foundations of Freedom", follows the landmark case on its journey to the United States Supreme Court.
Field House Museum Presents "Foundations of Freedom" Exhibit
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), February 10, 2019 - The Missouri Humanities Council (MHC) has awarded a grant of $2,500.00 to the Field House Museum in support of the project, "Foundations of Freedom." The MHC is the only state-wide agency in Missouri devoted exclusively to humanities education for citizens of all ages. It has served as a state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities since 1971.

The momentous story of Dred and Harriet Scott's fight for freedom is one of enduring strength, seemingly triumphant injustice, and rippling effects. The Field House Museum's exhibition, "Foundations of Freedom", follows the landmark case on its journey to the United States Supreme Court with attention to slavery in Missouri, freedom suits, the contributions of the attorney for the Scott family, Roswell Field, and the rise of national discussions on slavery and citizenship.

Step into the shoes of the Scotts, Roswell Field, and countless others who fought for freedom despite its unpopularity, in Field's home that stood just blocks away from the action. This exhibition opened February 2, 2019 in honor of African American History Month and will run through January 31, 2020.

The Field House Museum, located at 634 South Broadway, is a dynamic museum and historic site focused on the Field Family. The historic house was once the home of Roswell Field, noted St. Louis attorney, and the birthplace of his son, Eugene Field, the "Children's Poet." While living in the home, Roswell Field became the key attorney in the Dred & Harriet Scott Freedom Suit when he formulated the legal strategy that propelled the case to federal court. The house is designated as a National Historic Landmark and has an attached museum featuring the many collections of the Field House Museum along with traveling exhibits.

Admission: Adults $10.00, children 7-16: $5.00, members and children 6 & under: free

Museum Hours: Wednesday - Saturday 10:00am to 4:00pm, Sunday Noon to 4:00pm For general information, call 314/421.4689, email us at info@fieldhousemuseum.org or visit our website at fieldhousemuseum.org.
