"When the Cotton is High: Social Justice and Textiles'"

 For centuries women have used their utilitarian and decorative textile work to express their politics and opinions on issues of the day. We'll take a look at some historical examples and then romp through my own work. My quilts use the lens of identity and difference to confront social conflicts like campus rape culture, Black Lives Matter, and censorship.

Chawne Kimber is an award winning textile artist who exhibits quilts and embroidery in museums, galleries, and festivals in all over the United States. She is professor of mathematics at Lafayette.

Presented in conjuciton with the exhibition of quilts at Grossman Gallery, June 7-July 27.

Please note, Grossman Gallery will open at 6:30 p.m. before the talk. Refreshments will be available.
