Dallas Museum of Art presents "Moth to Cloth: Silk in Africa" opening day
Throughout the world, silk is used to make cloth and is associated with wealth and status. This rare natural fiber is also indigenous to sub-Saharan Africa. In this installation, cloths drawn from the DMA’s collection explore the production of silk and silk textiles in Ghana, Nigeria, and Madagascar.
The exhibition will remain on display through October 24, 2021.
