Field Trip Friday

Not so long ago, my dear sweet 2 year old decided she wasn't interested in taking a nap. I was deeply annoyed by her decision but was determined not to let it ruin my day. I loaded her up in the car and off we went to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts to check out a fabric exhibit.

The show is called Optical Effects: 1970s Printed Textiles and here are some highlights for those of you who aren't lucky enough to have this wonderful museum in your neighborhood ;) Please note that I took these photos without the benefit of a flash, which means the pics don't do the prints justice.

I should have just taken a nap...

This was my favorite print in the collection.

Delicious selvage

More delicious selvage

So there you have it. I hope you enjoyed the field trip. If you're in Minneapolis, MN the show runs until 2/26/2012. While this exhibit is small, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts is not to be missed!


P.S. Dear sweet daughter passed out in the car on the way home. Figures!

  1. Those are some wonderful prints. Thanks for taking us on the field trip too. I'd love to have those patio's in my stash right now. I hopped over from the giveaway and am happy to have found your blog. Cheers.
