““Unraveling Stories” is an experimental exhibition that explores a single object: the largest hooked rug in the museum’s collection. “Unraveling Stories” will share four stories through the rug: the story of the artistic tradition from which it came, the narrative story depicted in its images, the scientific story behind the experimental materials used in its making, and the personal story of the artist who made it.” Sharon Silverman designed a crochet yarn bomb for the exhibit that was inspired by the rug.
