May 17 1:00-3:00pm
Dr. Fanny Arango-Keeth and textile expert Eniko Farkas will talk about the secret stories encoded in embroidery. Aspects of embroidery such as color choices, motifs and designs, contain information about the artist and the culture from which they come. Fanny and Eniko will discuss how embroideries reveal information about national identity, gender relationships, personal status and economic realities.
This event is free and open to the public.
