Longtime costumer and costume designer Mildred Greene is remembered at Muhlenberg College in Allentown with a special exhibition, “It Fits, You’ll Wear It & Love It,” beginning Wednesday through Feb. 27.
The exhibit of costumes and photographs honors Greene’s impact on the theater and dance department and its productions. She built and designed costumes for the department and the Summer Music Theatre program from 1979 until her retirement in 2003.
Greene was destined to create costumes for the stage, as her father was an upholsterer and her mother sewed clothing and dance costumes for the family. Greene worked in New York City during World War II as a pattern maker for McCall’s Pattern Company while also working in alteration shops.
A reception will be held in the Galleria Lobby of the Baker Center for the Arts on Feb. 7, from 4 to 6 p.m.
