Chicago friends, take a weekend to visit The Loyola University Museum of Art's current exhibition: "Stories in Cloth: The Threads of Daily Life," a fascinating and diverse exhibition of textiles from the May Weber Collection in Chicago.
Textiles decorate and signify, disguise and protect, depict stories and enrich ceremonies. Dr. May Weber examines how textiles have been essential to the rituals and traditions of everyday life through objects in her own collection.www.luc.edu/luma.
Docent tours of the exhibition may be arranged by contacting Ann Meehan, Curator of Education, at312 915-7604
