Twelve naturally dyed, handwoven tapestries will be displayed on The Dequindre Cut during the month of September. The tapestries were created using plants grown and foraged in Detroit and woven with natural fibers. This exhibition is the culmination of a year long study of local natural dye plants and is a representation of the abundant natural world here in our urban environment. The tapestries will endure the sun and the wind and the rain will ultimately serve as an artifact of time and place.
During the opening event on September 5th, visitors can take pictures, ask questions and purchase a catalog of the exhibit.
This project was funded by The Knight Foundation and many individual contributors.
