Evergreen alumna Janice Arnold’s art and installation work has been redefining the boundaries of handmade FELT for more than 10 years. Her massive installation, Palace Yurt, a contemporary translation of traditional Mongolian structures, was the centerpiece of the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum’s 2009 Fashioning Felt exhibition in New York.
Palace Yurt: Deconstructed gives visitors a rare look behind the scenes of this groundbreaking work of textile art, including many pieces from the original installation. See how it all came together, from inspiration to logistics and technical drawings, the raw materials to the full artistic vision.
