My Life, Marks of a Needle
An exhibit of traditional Korean quilting and textiles by In Sook Park
On exhibit September 6 – 23, 2018
This special exhibit highlights an art form that dates back to the 14th century. These quilted patchworks were historically used as wrapping cloths – covering sacred texts, food, or as clothing (for “wrapping” a loved one). More than 50 textiles are being flown in from Korea. Sandy Spring Museum is the only location in the United States where this work will be exhibited.
The Art of Stewardship Project
The Art of Stewardship Project is a private foundation established by the Mort Family to encourage stewardship of the earth and environmental awareness through the arts. A grass roots effort, The Art of Stewardship Project assists arts communities by organizing and providing forums for interaction and dialogue offering resources and opportunities to artists in their role as Stewards of our Earth.
Painter, Greg Mort’s collection consists of 8 large-scale giclée canvas mounted prints. Mort’s prints will be on display at the Museum for just one day during the 2018 Fall Gala on October 25th.
