Threads Through Time Exhibition at the Baum
August 26 - October 15Free
Threads Through Time is a comprehensive, tiered exhibition of modern and contemporary fiber art that was assembled as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of suffrage in the U.S. The Baum will show historical, traditional fiber work such as weaving, quilting, and embroidery that are created by mostly anonymous Arkansas women. Alongside the historical pieces will be compelling contemporary works created within the last two decades by American women artists of various ages and backgrounds. These contemporary fiber artists make provocative work with social implications and use fiber as a medium equal to painting, sculpture and printmaking. The exhibition culminates with a commissioned, site-specific installation by Kansas-based artist Rena Detrixhe who will create a beautifully crafted, patterned “rug” out of red dirt imprinted by discarded shoe soles.
Please note, all visitors will be required to wear a mask, follow social distancing, and asked for other protocols as made clear upon arrival. Those not willing to adhere will be denied entry.
