Join us for the closing lecture of the inaugural exhibit People Made These Things: Connecting with the Makers of Our World. Weaver Porfirio GutiƩrrez will speak about his work as an artist and the work of his community to preserve the use of plant and insect dyes, techniques that stretch back more than 1,000 years in the indigenous Zapotec tradition. This talk will open a three day series of events which include a textile sale and natural dye workshop. Enjoy light refreshments before the lecture which will begin at 5:30pm.
