Of all the cloth in the world, ikat stands out. Creating this textile requires dedication, if not devotion, to the power of each and every thread that is tied to resist dye. Join us as we explore the global connections of ikat in Ikat: A World of Compelling Cloth on a docent-led tour.
Tours will meet in the entry way of the fourth floor special exhibition galleries and are free with museum admission.
