On Monday, March 10, our temporary exhibit Inspired By... Works of the C-U Spinners and Weavers Guild will close forever. It's always sad to see something you have brought to life go away, but it is especially hard when it means the end of a long, close collaboration that has resulted in such friendship and joy. I know that we will work with the spinners and weavers again--this was our third collaboration with them--but this one was special. Inspired By... lived up to its name. The Guild members were inspired by our artifacts, and we were inspired by their dedication, kindness, and incredible artistic abilities. As we saw our objects through their eyes, we were constantly amazed at what had been there all along, waiting for the right observer. My sincere thanks to all of the Guild members who made four intense years together so very rewarding.
