Description

Join us for an educator-led tour of two fascinating exhibitions focusing on the material culture of Colombia and the Andean region. Make a small weaving, and receive complimentary lesson plans. Waterweavers: The River in Contemporary Colombian Visual and Material Culture features furniture, sculpture, textiles, video, and other works by contemporary Colombian artists, referencing rivers and their many meanings. Carrying Coca: 1,500 Years of Andean Chuspas examines how two aspects of Andean life—coca leaves and handwoven textiles—are brought together in the chuspa—a small woven bag designed to hold coca leaves.

Registration is strongly recommended.
