Textiles get political
This exhibition explored different four political eras through textiles. It was a fascinating look at a range of commentary, boosterism, counterculture, and identity. The exhibition was divided into four “homes” that each reflected a different era. The curators used color coding to distinguish the four sections, so we followed that coding with the titles, labels, and didactic panels. A large window panel served to welcome visitors into the exhibition and also protect textiles that were close to the window and might get too much sun.
