In Our Image
Community members are invited to bring treasured family photos or take a selfie and create their own textile art onsite. Join our group of artists, historians, and conservators to tell your family story through photos, and an archivist/preservationist will help preserve and protect the prints.
If you’d like, your photo can be conserved, scanned, and printed on a small canvas. We’ll have sewing stations for you to express your artistic side by creating your own stitched portrait. Take inspiration from the works in Gio Swaby: Fresh Up, where the artist creates unique portraits through a range of textile-based methodologies.
FREE with museum admission; Limited capacity, advanced registration recommended
