Description

Identity Tapestry is both a portrait of a community and each individual participant. Inviting visitors to weave aspects of themselves into a participatory artwork, artist Mary Corey March gives us new insights into both ourselves and the people we see around us every day, opening our minds to reflection and healing. The 20-foot long installation, made of hand-dyed yarn, and statements of identity and lived experience that range from "I am a woman" to " I am fortunate" will join UNLV's permanent collection. This exhibition and accompanying programs are produced by the Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art and Nevada Humanities, with support from the UNLV College of Fine Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities.

*Please note the interactive portion of this installation is only open to 200 individuals.  Once the tapestry is full the interactive portion will end but the tapestry will remain on display until May 12, 2018.
