The “Seeing Red” exhibit is curated by a volunteer committee of collectors, conservation experts, retired faculty, and artists of world textiles, presented by the Lotus Education & Arts Foundation. The exhibit includes a broad array of textiles from around the world and from many periods: an early Coptic fragment, a Persian hanging, a Mexican huipil, Kashmir shawls, a Turkman carpet, an Uzbek robe, to recent bedcovers that demonstrate the wide range of and use of red throughout history. Each collector will discuss a particular piece from their collection, its history, geographic origin, cultural connections, and explain the particular use of the color red in the textile.
