I spent part of the afternoon at the Seattle Asian Art Museum and I will be returning to spend much more time with the stunning exhibit “Mood Indigo: Textiles from Around the World“.
This exhibit has something for everyone to enjoy, including a room with 3 MASSIVE 17th century tapestries from Flanders, and associated items, including a 19th Century American overshot coverlet in the Lee’s Surrender pattern.
Other rooms in the exhibit are filled with 18th century kimonos, contemporary artworks, African and Southeast Asian and Indian and American traditional garments. I am sure I missed much.
Really, there is so much in this show for anyone with an interest in textiles and history, I cannot recommend it highly enough. And there are two other exhibits currently on display which also deserve more than the cursory view, I gave to them!
Mood Indigo will be on display through October. If you do go, I also recommend you plan a bit of time to enjoy the Conservatory and Volunteer park, where the museum is located.
Thanks for sharing, Sarah. Will definitely plan on a trip up.
