Please join Liz Squillace and Ruben Marroquin at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, on Saturday September 27th from 1pm to 4pm, for a celebration of Hispanic Heritage month. Marroquin will be conducting weaving demonstrations, exhibiting examples of his work and participants will get hands on experience on the loom as well as experimenting with unexpected materials to create sculptural artworks inspired by Ruben’s work. Meanwhile Squillace will be screen printing ancient Peruvian textile designs and guiding visitors through the embroidery of these time-honored motifs. We hope to see you there!
