We are delighted to invite our members to join us for a special look at the Wende Museum!
Arranged in conjunction with our FIRST ANNUAL Los Angeles Textile Month!
Please join us for this special opportunity. The staff of the Wende Museum has graciously agreed to offer us a private tour of the current exhibitions, followed by a behind-the-scenes look at their abundant and astonishing trove of Eastern European textiles.
This is a rare opportunity to experience one of LA's most unusual museums, get an intimate look at the collections and the parallel then-and-now experiences of a political state in flux, and showcase the breadth and depth of *our* membership and relevance to LA's institutional textile scene.
We invite you to enjoy a few photos we've included below, check out the website yourself, and rsvp to join us for this special afternoon!
The Wende Museum is the nation's foremost repository of art and artifacts from Cold War-era Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union. Founded in 2002 by Dr. Justinian Jampol, a third-generation UCLA Bruin, the museum harbors more than 100,000 unique objects of visual and material culture, and educates, inspires and challenges expectations with experimental programs and exhibitions. The Wende's new exhibition includes “Watching Socialism: The Television Revolution in Eastern Europe.”
