Join us in the art gallery for an opening reception for this fascinating exhibit! We'll start with a viewing of the textiles followed by a talk by Exhibit Curator Geraldine Craig of Kansas State University. After the talk, we'll show the documentary The Split Horn: The Life of A Hmong Shaman in America and offer some refreshments.

Hmong flower cloth (or paj ntaub) is one of the world’s great textile traditions and an excellent example of cloth as community. The works illustrate the profound relevance of textiles as infrastructure in the Hmong culture, an art form that shifted as it adapted to fit new realities. The exhibition features over two dozen textiles—flower cloths and embroidered story clothes—by those in the Hmong community.

The exhibit will run from November 10, 2019 through January 7, 2020.
