Cloth as Community: Hmong Textiles in America EXHIBIT

    • The Hmong are people indigenous to the mountain regions of Southeast Asia, many of whom are now dispersed throughout the world by the disruption of war and refugee experience. This exhibition charts the evolution of the rich Hmong textile culture, from geometric ornamental cloth forms to embroidered story cloths, and the blending of traditional motifs with representations of new lives and the creation of community in America. A Program of ExhibitsUSA, a national division of Mid-America Arts Alliance and the National Endowment for the Arts.
