Global Warming: Quilts, Coverlets and Blankets

Honolulu Museum of Art
18 May 2017 - 17 September 2017  |  Official Website

This exhibition highlights textile works from around world that go beyond the basics of providing protection, warmth, security, and comfort. Made from wool, silk, and cotton, they were worn as emblems of status, displayed as ceremonial banners, presented as tribute cloth or used in trade. Whether the artists are identified or remain anonymous, their legacy unfolds with each piece, an intricately handmade record of history.
