Tapestry Concept Design Exhibition Planned at SWOSU


Southwestern Oklahoma State University is sponsoring the making of a tapestry to represent the life, traditions and symbols of western Oklahoma, and the organizing committee is  sponsoring an exhibition to get comments about the project on Friday, May 1, from 4-6 p.m. in the SWOSU Art Building on the Weatherford campus.

E.K. Jeong said the exhibition will display the current concepts of the tapestry.  Everyone is invited.

Participants will be able to make comments and suggestions before the project actually begins. The design exhibition will be from May 1-July 1.

Once the tapestry is completed, it will be a traveling display that will be available for display throughout western Oklahoma.

A workshop is also planned for Saturday, May 2, from 11 a.m. until 12 noon and again from 2-3 p.m. A donation of $5 is asked to help pay for materials.

The project is sponsored by the generous funding from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, the Weatherford Arts Council, and SWOSU.
