Plan on watching the Cleveland Museum of Art virtual program on Wednesday October 14 at 12:00 noon. You can find the program on the museum’s web site. It is a Close Looking at a Distance (CLAD) program featuring the Korean Embroidery exhibit. This ‘field trip” will be virtual.
Follow this with our Zoom meeting to discuss and expand on our virtual visit with the museum’s staff and share our personal experiences with embroidery and/or Korean textiles. The Zoom meeting is scheduled for Thursday, October 15 at 11:30 am (our regular meeting day and time). Once again, be on the look-out for an invitation from Lynne.
Cleveland Museum of Art has a program called Close Looking at a Distance-CLAD- and on Wed Oct 14 at 12 Noon, they are having a Virtual Event About the Korean Embroidery exhibit that will be closing at the end of this month. It is easy to access on a computer.

Close Looking at a Distance: Scrutinizing the Stitches
Wednesday, October 14, 12:00 p.m.
What can a wedding gown, liberally decorated and lovingly patched and repaired, tell us about the culture, values, and artisans from which it emerged? In this CLAD session, join host Key Jo Lee and curator of Korean art Sooa McCormick for a guided look at an intricately embroidered garment from the CMA’s permanent collection, currently on view in the exhibition Gold Needles: Embroidery Arts from Korea.
Upcoming exhibit of interest to the guild is:
A new exhibit in the Textile Gallery will be coming November 22 featuring the textiles of the Guna, an indigenous territory in Panama. Think Mola!
A note about visiting in person:
The museum is open with the normal distancing and masking restrictions if anyone does want to try to see the Korean exhibit before it closes. Check their web site for details.
