Treadlette Tuesday: Ardus Recommends Textile Exhibits!

This week, Ardus is sharing some local textile events she's hoping to attend!

"If you're searching for some unusual textile and/or garment exhibits in the Twin Cities, I've recently discovered two very accessible and fun exhibits. I'm always searching for something different, and I found it at the American Swedish Institute, conveniently located in the heart of Minneapolis. 

"Recently reviewed in the Star Tribune, it was described as 'old-meets-new' concept for the garments on display. The exhibit is entitled, 'The Weather Diaries'. ASI is located at 2600 Park Ave S.

"Another is an Ikat textile exhibit, a bit more traditional, can be found in the Goldstein Museum at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul campus in McNeal Hall. I've always appreciated exhibits at this museum, and you won't be disappointed.

"Ikat patterns are both intricate and bold, and those on display are from locations such as Central Asia, Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia, Uzbekistan, Japan and the South American Andes will be on exhibit. Central Asian Ikat patterns date back to the days of Genghis Khan. Curious? I am. Located at: 364 McNeal Hall, 1985 Buford Ave, St. Paul."
