Presidential Scarf

Presidential Scarf Proposal Sketch, 2009

Messiah College’s President Kim Phipps commissioned the Textiles Surface Design class to create designs that the class would hand-paint onto silk scarves. These scarves would then be presented as gifts to the women of the Board of Trustees as part of the College’s Centennial Celebration. This design was one of five chosen by President Phipps, who personally requested this design be used for 7 of 25 scarves.
