Featured in the inaugural show for the new textile art galleries, the objects in Cover Story mirror the diverse geographical areas and range of textiles found in the Denver Art Museum's permanent collection.
Cover Story explores the myriad ways that textiles envelop, embellish, and enrich human lives across centuries, continents, and cultures. Whether as warming layers that comfort us during sleep, decorative furnishings on our walls and floors that enhance our waking hours, or shields providing protection from the elements or evil spirits, textiles are present throughout all moments of our lives.
The exhibition includes about 50 objects from the permanent collection.
Cover Story was the heart of the summer 2013 campus-wide exhibition Spun: Adventures in Textiles.
