In the Making: Modern and Contemporary Fiber Art New Acquisitions
October 29, 2022 - July 16, 2023
Robert and Marlyss White Gallery (Gallery 281)
“In the Making” features a selection of artworks newly added to Mia’s permanent collection, all on view for the first time. These objects offer a glimpse of the depth and breadth of American artists who together have shaped the field of modern and contemporary fiber art. While they originated in different regions of the United States, and their preferred medium varies from copper wire to feathers to window screens, the artists’ commitment to making and deep respect for labor remain constant.
