Material Pulses: Seven Viewpoints
May 25, 9:00 am – August 11, 5:00 pm
Material Pulses: Seven Viewpoints,* the next changing exhibit at The MAX, focuses on the art of quilt making, and represents seven fiber artists from around the world. Curated by internationally renowned artist and teacher Nancy Crow, Material Pulses contributes to the dialogue of contemporary textile arts. Says Crow, “Material Pulses is the culmination of my mission to bring back the majesty, strength, and energy of textile works, particularly large quilts.”
Mississippi Quiltings is the materialization of talent from right here in Mississippi. Twenty quilts were selected from submissions of original quilts by Mississippi artists to make up this exhibit. Paired with Material Pulses, these exhibitions will expose Mississippians to new techniques and hopefully inspire new artists.
Free with museum admission.
