In-Person Event: Utah Museum of Fine Arts Tour - Textiles & Texture

Oil on Canvas

A velvet dress, a woven blanket, a solitary coat on a hanger: how are textiles rendered in paintings and sculptures? What stories do they tell? Explore the UMFA's permanent collection--as well as the newest exhibition, Pictures of Belonging--with an eye toward fabrics we can all but reach out and touch. With educator Ashley Farmer and volunteer Veronica Montes.

Photo information: Miki Hayakawa, From My Window, 1935 Oil on canvas, 28 x 28 in. Collection of Sandra & Bram Dijkstra on loan at the Huntington Library and Museum
