Textiles Recycled/Reimagined

baltimore exhibit
The Baltimore Museum of Art
10 Art Museum Drive
Baltimore, 21218

This intimate exhibition presents a dozen unique objects made either wholly or in part from reused and/or repurposed materials. Examples include a Japanese Buddhist priest’s robe composed of expensive fabrics donated by wealthy acolytes, a quilt made of scraps of ordinary commercial fabrics sewn by an African-American woman, and handcrafted mats from the Grenfell missions of Labrador made of silk or rayon jersey from worn out stockings and undergarments. Also featured is a contemporary American quilted wall hanging made from vintage handkerchiefs, and a silk fabric made with feathers from restaurant-harvested fowls.
