Sixteen artists were provided access to the Collection in early 2019 to serve as inspiration for new artworks created exclusively for the exhibition. Their work and examples of Collection inspirations are displayed side-by-side.
This exhibition marks the conclusion of the 50th anniversary of the Helen Louise Allen Textile Collection. Points of Departure highlights the Collection’s continuing function as a vital resource and catalyst for new exploration and creativity.
