May 29, 2015

01.02.15_Avenir_Kula-MolasOur exhibition space in the University Center for the Arts continues the signature exhibition Kuna Molas: Sewn Stories and the Interplay of Tradition and Change. Enjoy the rich history and skill embodied in the textiles and garments crafted by the Kuna Indians of Panama’s San Blas Islands. This exhibition highlights the mola as both textile art and as cultural artifact, and examines how molas reflect the complex interplay of maintaining Kuna cultural traditions in a changing world and global economy. All of the molas, photographs, and supporting objects in the exhibition, dating from the 1920s through the 1990s, are part of a new donation to the Avenir Museum by Colorado Springs textile collector, exhibition developer, and author Joyce Cheney; they traveled for almost ten years as part of a national touring exhibition curated by Cheney.
