Co-design teams comprising UW–Madison students enrolled in Judy Frater’s spring 2022 Interdisciplinary Arts Residency course and traditional artisans from Kutch, India have worked together this semester to present the exhibition Coming Together: Culturally Inspired Creation and a public trunk show. The work being sold will consist of limited editions of the co-designed textiles as well as pieces designed and produced by the artisans. During this time, the exhibition will be open and there will be a reception. The trunk show is supported by the Global Artisans Initiative.
Lesley Sager is the founder of Merry Go Strong, a non-profit organization that works in partnership with the communities in Kenya, by supporting women and children to expand their craft, mind, and resources. We are proudly selling these handcrafted baskets made from the women in Tharaka, Kenya at the trunk show.
The exhibition is presented in co-sponsorship with the Center for Design and Material Culture, Division of the Arts, and the Design Studies Department and is part of Judy Frater’s interdisciplinary arts residency.
