Cloth as Community: Threading the Needle of the Past, Present, and Future

To promote an appreciation for and education of the complex history, culture and tradition of the Hmong people among members of the campus and the greater Sacramento community, in collaboration with the community two concurrent exhibits, “Cloth as Community: Threading the Needle of the Past, Present, and Future”, will show the textile works that Hmong women traditionally produced using abstract designs, created by embroidery, appliqué, reverse appliqué, and batik depicting a scene, event or narrative from Hmong history or culture. The exhibit is meant to be an impactful and informative experience for university students, staff/faculty, and community members.
