This Monday, April 17th, Metropolitan Museum of Art Curator Melinda Watt talks Paisley in our next Art in the First Person lecture!
From the blog: "Presented by BFA Visual & Critical Studies, this talk will trace the movement of the Paisley motif across the Eurasian continent and through the 19th century, using designs and textiles preserved in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Curator Melinda Watt has been inspired by the Museum’s collections as well as the students, scholars and artists who visit the Met’s Antonio Ratti Textile Center, and she will discuss paisley-patterned textiles from elaborate shawls to the modest printed cottons." This is not one to miss! #aifp #artinthefirstperson #lecture #nyc #visualcritical
