Man's Parka, North America, Inuit, early 20th century, 118 x 66 cm (46 7/16 x 26 in.), Gift of Mr. Percy L. Schoof.
One of humankind’s earliest forms of artistic expression and cultural communication was in the creation of textiles. Adorning the body with both utilitarian and status clothing and accessories remains a potent cultural pastime and industry across the globe today. This highly descriptive tour designed for people who have low vision or are blind will provide insight into materials, styles, and purposes of textiles from the museums' collection including a parka of the Inuit peoples of the Arctic and a 17th century Wall tapestry fit for a king. All are welcome and encouraged to attend.
This event is free and available to the public upon registration.
