Weaving, sewing, crocheting and embroidering are art forms that help sustain a connection to cultural history and identity. Interlacing Threads present the work of seven artists who fuse these traditional techniques with unconventional materials and various mediums to achieve complex work that lies beyond the decorative. Ultimately, the work in the exhibition forges a greater understanding of the similar underpinnings of worldwide cultures and common social issues.
The Hokin Project, an arts management practicum course, provides gallery management, exhibition, curatorial, and design experience for students of all majors. The Project presents the work of the Columbia College Chicago community through programs, events, and exhibitions.
Launched in 2010, the Hokin Project is a student-run collaboration of the Arts, Entertainment & Media Management Department (AEMM) and Student Affairs / Department of Exhibitions and Performance Spaces (DEPS) of Columbia College Chicago.
