Description

Archive AR05.24.07 No object list. A colorful potpourri of textile treasures-- Oriental rugs, Persian shawls, American quilts and coverlets, Indian scarves-- and perhaps a few fans, tureens, and decanters will be shown in this exhibition concieved on a broad definition of "cover-up." Many of these objects have been in the collection since they were given to the University of Kansas in 1917, and have been selected for this eclectic summer "bazar" both for their technical merit and aesthetic interest.

Beautiful textiles from around the world made up this colorful summer exhibition of seldom seen treasures from the Museum's collection.
