Threads of Rain
Wednesdays–Sundays, 1:00–5:00 p.m.

Melissa Cody is a fourth-generation Navajo weaver from Arizona who works in the Germantown Revival style. A contemporary artist influenced by street culture and art, Cody uses traditional patterns and deconstructs them to create new works. Incorporating eclectic color schemes and bold, sharp lines with geometric overlay, she enhances the dimensionality of each design and reworks it into a new composition. During her residency Cody will create woven textiles that address environmental issues that affect “the forgotten people”—tribal members of her home, the Navajo Reservation in rural Arizona.
