For Stephanie Syjuco: Pattern Migration, the artist had 5,000 meters of plastic fabric manufactured in Beijing. The fabric design was inspired by an American coverlet from CMA’s Stuck Collection of coverlets from the nineteenth-century. The exhibition perfectly dovetails with the rise of the “Maker Culture” (see the recent CMA blog post “If You Can Dream It, You Can Make It”).
From August 23 through September 4, 2011, you can take home your own piece of Syjuco’s plastic fabric for your own creations. Just stop in the Museum and ask for up to five yards of free fabric. As a special benefit, CMA members can request up to 10 yards of fabric for free. Just show your membership card.
In a recent staff meeting ideas bandied about for the fabric included a Slip ‘n Slide, a tent and the shopping bag that also served as inspiration for the exhibition. Stephanie Syjuco commissioned local Columbus artist Sharon Stewart to create things to inspire our visitors. Look for her clutch, wallet and cape creations next week.
