Lace from the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection
September 8 - November 17
Lace is the single largest category of objects in the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection. From fine art on the wall to intimate garments on the body, lace surrounds us yet often goes unnoticed. This exhibition will investigate the complex historical, cultural, technical, and aesthetic histories of lace, offering new perspectives of this strong, delicate, and beautiful material.
