Join us for the opening reception of The Kimono Project. The Kimono Project is based on a gift to LAFTA of two large bins of vintage, second-hand kimonos. After deconstructing the garments to salvage the silk, LAFTA members created new art pieces employing multiple fiber techniques. While some pieces overtly reference their origins as Japanese kimono, others more
subtly celebrate the functional and aesthetic
qualities of silk and traditional Japanese textile practices.
