Sheila O’Hara’s innovative and often humorous tapestries have gained international attention. Her latest work includes lush landscapes, a series of jacquard tapestries inspired by Edward Curtis photographs of Native American Indians and most recently, some of her imaginary landscapes. Her work has been featured in numerous publications and is in many public, private and museum collections including the de Young Museum and the Denver Art Museum.

To showcase the DAM’s newly acquisitioned piece, both Sheila O’Hara and Alice Zrebiec, the Avenir Foundation Curator of Textile Art, will be offering a ‘timed’ viewing of Sheila’s woven wall hanging, nite flite, in the PreView space.

  • 10:30 am-noon: lecture in Sharp Auditorium, Hamilton Building, lower level
  • 1:30-2:30 pm: viewings in the PreView space (require same day pre-registration and DAM admission for timed 20 minute viewings), North Building, level 6

Lecture is free, but does not include gallery admission.  Participation in the timed viewings of Sheila’s nite flite requires museum admission (free for DAM members).

For more information, call 720-913-0125.
