July 11 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join Mary Savig, the Lloyd Herman Curator of Craft, for a lecture about the exhibition “Subversive, Skilled, Sublime: Fiber Art by Women”, now on view at SAAM’s Renwick Gallery. The artists featured mastered everyday materials, subverted conventions, and transformed humble threads into sublime creations.

In this virtual program, Savig shares how the exhibition came together as a collaboration between SAAM and the Smithsonian’s Archives of American Art, combining artworks in SAAM’s collection with archival materials and interviews held by the Archives. She will also discuss themes of the exhibition, including the intersections between fiber arts and domestic work.
