Weavings in Honor of Fort Lewis Boarding School Students
Cotton, wool and synthetic yarns, safety pins
During the spring semester, Curatorial Fellow Elise Boulanger held mini loom weaving workshops across campus to continue conversation about Fort Lewis boarding school history. Weavers were encouraged to loan their piece to the exhibit. As more workshops were held, the installation grew.
