Women + Water: A Global Exhibit

Date: May 15 - May 19, 2022
In conjunction with JASM don't miss this incredible art exhibit, Women + Water: A Global Exhibit taking place on the DeVos Place skywalk May 15-19, 2022.

This art exhibit by weaver Mary Burns reverences water through handwoven jacquard portraits of women who work with water, protect it and advocate for it. The exhibit celebrates scientists, water-walkers, teachers, farmers, activists, and healers from around the globe. Like the interlacement of streams, weaving is an intermingling of fibers, making fiber art a natural medium for this work.

20 woven portraits are on display at JASM from Sunday evening, May 15 th through Thursday morning, May 19th. The exhibit will be held in the DeVos Place’s Skywalk Gallery.

As part of the project, Mary has worked with University of Wisconsin-Trout Lake Limnology Station, as well as the Wisconsin Arts Board.
