North and South Auditorium Galleries, Ground Floor
Selections from the museum’s growing collection of contemporary works in fiber are exhibited in conjunction with the April 8 symposium, "Discovered Collections: Fiber Art in Museums," organized by the Friends of Fiber Art International. The installation and symposium are the third and final in a series beginning in 1999 and held at The Art Institute of Chicago and M. H. de Young Memorial Museum in San Francisco. Featured at the Museum are one-of-a-kind works acquired since 1975 by artists such as Sheila Hicks, Diane Itter, Ed Rosbach, and Lenore Tawney, among others.
