Lisa Auerbach exhibit in Ann Arbor, Michigan

Recently I visited this exhibit with my older son, who wondered if there was a connection with a famous coach. When viewing this exhibit, a forest of hanging matching sweater-skirt sets, he mentioned how it reminded him of ancient Greek vases or Ukrainian Easter eggs. Indeed, this reminds me of folk art: one practical form, decorated using meticulous technique, combining traditional designs to create new messages. It's worth a visit if you are in the area, not only to see the knitting, but also to see this brand new wing of the University of Michigan Museum of Art.

Hooray for Lisa! she's

Hooray for Lisa! she's amazing (and the genius I worked with to create my "cure" sweater this summer) - her work is really worth seeing - check it out if you're in the area - I think this exhibit (or part of it) is going across the pond to England...

thanks for sharing this!!!
