Contemporary Arts Museum Houston presents Family Day with Travis Boyer, The Community Cloth, and Eva Ybarra
The exhibitions Whispering Bayou and Texas Design Now will be featured at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston's monthly Family Day, featuring hands-on activities led by artists and designers and a performance by renowned conjunto musician Eva Ybarra.
Brooklyn-based artist Travis Boyer will present a hands-on workshop titled “Denim, Please Elaborate.” Embellished denim could be considered a diverse craft that spans a variety of distinct and overlapping cultural heritages. The embroidered and patched denim of miners, African American quilters, rhinestone cowboys, crusty studded punks, are celebrated at this Family Day. The workshop will include dry processes such as bedazzling, embroidery, studs, and appliqué, and wet processes such as indigo, puff paint, and dye markers. Bring a pair of jeans, a jacket, or some fabric and anything else you can possibly think of.
The Community Cloth will also be on-site demonstrating their unique process used to create the incredible soft and colorful textiles as seen in their work featured in Texas Design Now.
