Shark's culminating research project is this exhibition which she curated for the Decker Library display cases, drawing on the library's Virginia West Fiber Art Study Collection and on the teaching collection of Julie Geschwind, faculty for MICA's History of World Textiles course (AH324.01). The exhibit includes an Andean textile fragment from the Chancay culture collected by Virginia West which may be the oldest item in the Decker Library!
Virginia West is a Maryland fiber artist with a practice focused on weaving. West was on faculty at MICA from 1969 until the early 1980s, in what was then known as the Crafts department. West assembled reference files of her weaving projects and teaching materials on subjects ranging from ancient to contemporary fiber art, and donated these materials to Decker Library by way of MICA's Fiber Department. Julie Geschwind is a textile curator and scholar who teaches at MICA.
