There is so much more to learn about the process and craft of creation in Tanya Aguiniga's exhibition at the Museum of Art and Design called Craft & Care.
We learned that Tanya created the hanging fabric scultural installations by asking the actual migrants that were crossing the border of Mexico to the United States to tie a knot to the continuous fabric ropes. So, each knot represented a traveller crossing the border. Tanya's exhibition will be up until October 2, 2018, so visitors will have a bit more time to see her exhibition. Derrick's exhibition ends August 2, 2018. And La Frontera: Encounters Along the Border runs until September 23, 2018.
All 3 concurrent exhibitions are so worth seeing in one visit as they all somehow relate to each other. We didn't get a chance to view Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Shapiro, so hopefully when I get the family passes for the students, they can go back and take their time and experience Contemporary Art with their families.
Students might have not realized that on the entry level wall where the elevators were, was also an art installation by Samantha Bittman called 'Interlace'. This large scale vinyl mural was created to coincide with the 'Surface/Depth: The Decorative After Miriam Shapiro's group exhibition.
