Pam Vinci

Pam Vinci- Former Curator for the LSU Textile & Costume Museum

During Pam's tenure as Curator, our holdings grew significantly as she nurtured relationships with donors. Her efforts in grant writing raised over $500,000 to support the museum infrastructure, and she has curated over twenty exhibitions and countless displays at various fundraisers and events. With style, grace, and humility Pam has tenaciously supported the Textile & Costume Museum (TCM) and the many students that have had the pleasure of her mentorship. She also taught various courses across the fashion merchandising and design curriculum, led study tours, and supervised our internship program for many years. Many alumni fondly remember their time as a student of Pam. Pam is a friend and ray of sunshine to all who know her; we are lucky to have had her in the Textiles, Apparel Design, and Merchandising department. Ms. Pam retired from LSU on May 31, 2023.

Funds received for the Pam Rabalais-Vinci LSU Textile and Costume Museum Exhibition Fund will support TCM exhibitions as we disseminate knowledge through curatorial practice, student engagement, and community outreach.
