Staff Report | Feb. 5, 2013 | Snite Museum of Art
The Snite Museum of Art’s newest educational program, Third Thursdays @ the SNITE, resumes February 21 with a community-wide, day-long sewing circle hosted by Native American artist Marie Watt.
Watt, whose woodcuts are included in the exhibition Dreams Wiser than Waking: Recent Acquisitions of Native American Prints, draws from indigenous design principles, oral traditions, personal experience, and Western art history in the creation of her unique work with blankets.
The public is invited to a sewing circle set to begin at 10:00 a.m. at the Snite Museum. With breaks throughout the day, the sewing event will continue during the reception from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. No sewing experience is necessary. In exchange for their stitches and time, participants will receive from Watt a silkscreen print.
