the Silk Rainforest


The Silk Rainforest by Sheila Hicks

This is displayed at the Renwick Gallery in DC and it's a really cool piece to see in person.  When reading the history of the art you will see that it was originally commissioned for AT&T headquarters in 1975 and that's where it stayed until 2002.  After being restored by Hicks, the SAAM acquired it in 2009.

Great job AT&T for appreciating contemporary textiles.
