For the month of April 2012, The Anthropology Museum has installed the Weavings From Asia exhibit at the library of Kishwaukee Community College in Malta, Illinois. This is a unique cooporative opportunity for both institutions and has become an annual tradition.
As Kishwaukee Community College celebrates Asian-American Heritage Month, The Anthropology Museum at NIU is pleased to participate in telling the history of traditional Asian weaving techniques through this exhibit. Included in the display are a variety of woven artifacts from Japan, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, and the Phillipines.
The exhibit is displayed in three glass cases at the entrance of the library. Don't miss it! The exhibit will be changed at the end of April. While visiting the exhibit, please feel free to pick up a free brochure of the Center for Burma Studies at NIU or the Center for Southeast Asian Studies at NIU. This exhibit is curated by NIU Anthropology graduate student Karly Guldan.
