- The Goldie Paley Gallery at Moore College here exhibit student and faculty work, plus curated shows of textile and fine art influences. Moore's founder, Sarah Worthington Peter, saw the profound social and economic implications of the Industrial Revolution and realized the enormous potential for women in the work place. Peter felt that women should be trained to meet the highest standards of production in textiles, wallpapers, floor coverings, upholstery materials, lithography, bookmaking and illustration, and wood engraving. Today, women in ten professional and fine arts programs at Moore College continue to forge a unique niche in the design industry.
