Secret weavings


Aug 15th 2013

The Utah Museum of Fine Arts has an amazing collection of handmade textiles, including American indian blankets from then 1920s and 1930s and silk thangkas. Unfortunately, you usually only get to see them if you are a volunteer helping in their preservation or a journalist who cages a visit into the catacombs beneath the museum.

But you'll get at least a taste of what we like to think of as the "secret treasures of the UMFA" in Sept. 17 when a mini-exhibit will be hung in the museum's foyer. If you have an interest in weaving, interior design, art or just marvel at the beauty artisans create with their hands, we recommend you check it out.

Can't wait until the exhibit opens? Salt Lake magazine is offering a video tour of the UMFA's textiles down under and the painstaking effort to preserve them produced videographer Fernando Lara.

By the way, you too can become a UMFA volunteer.
