Stitch by Stitch Exhibit

Omar and I visited the Stitch by Stitch Exhibit at the Tokyo Metropolitan Teien Art Museum yesterday. I had read about it here and wanted to check it out. It took some convincing to get Omar on board (he was expecting a bunch of needlepoint pillows?), but in the end he agreed to go and we both loved it. They didn't allow cameras in, so sadly I don't have any pictures of all the art.

Entrance to the museum

The exhibit featured artists using embroidery, beading, etc. as their medium. Translation: it was really cool. I think my favorite installation was the corner filled with artificial plants that had been beaded and embroidered. So otherworldly.
