Textiles of Exiles
For oppressed people forced to flee their native lands, textiles are often the last refuge of their artistic expression. An exhibit at the Gregg Museum of Art & Design at North Carolina State University highlights the work of exiles. It's called "Textiles of Exiles," and is running concurrently with another exhibit called "Barkcloth, Bras, and Bulletproof Cotton: The Powers of Costume." Host Frank Stasio talks about both exhibits with museum director Roger Manley.
