Laced With History

So the show Laced With History has opened at the Kohler Arts Center in Sheboygan and Parthenope and Stella are there. Any of you in the area should go and check it out.
Here's the blurb:

LACED WITH HISTORYJanuary 21—May 20Many contemporary artists use lace as a formal or theoretical starting point in order to address issues related to personal history and cultural memory,class and gender, the processes of making, and the relationship between form and content. Laced with History begins with lace made by historical andcontemporary lace makers. It then moves to the sculptures, drawings, paintings, and jewelry of 30 contemporary artists who use or reference lace.Together, these artists offer a new context for understanding lace—namely, its role within contemporary art and, by extension, contemporary culture and society.

I love it when my art degree pays off.
