The button collection of acclaimed New York fashion designer and author Hazel Doten is on permanent display on the lower level of the McHenry Museum in Modesto.

The work of Jenny Schmid explores ideas of gender, identity and liberty and is inspired by the graphic tradition of social commentary. She draws from medieval engraving, Persian miniatures, current politics, and graphic novels to create a contemporary narrative. Her work uses humor to draw the viewer in and then asks them to confront greater social issues. Although she works in a range of graphic media, from lithography to animation, she returns to black and white etching as the most direct (albeit laborious) method to emphasize the influence of historical sources and the urgency of my content.
