A few months ago, staff from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Bard Graduate School of the Decorative Arts came to visit the project and film the stitchers, lace makers and spangle maker. The product of that film footage will be part of the exhibit ‘Twixt Art and Nature‘ opening in the Bard Graduate School on December 11th. The exhibit will also showcase a spectacular jacket which was studied as part of the preparation work for this project. I highly recommend the exhibit if you are in the NYC area. You will be able to see a real jacket and also footage of our project along with some discussion about the relationship between these objects.
The exhibit website can be found here. For some eye-candy, here is a glove I brought for show and tell the other day. This is a project for the public program at the exhibit on December 12th. It uses several threads developed for the jacket project or those that were developed as an offshoot of the relationships developed during the project.
