Beginning August 6, EUROPEAN AND SCANDINAVIAN TEXTILES from the Museum’s permanent collection will be on view in the Warren Theater Gallery. Selected pieces include head covers from Croatia, embroidered panels from Greece, decorative wall hangings from Sweden and Poland, and women’s hats from the Sámi culture in Finland. A large tapestry by the Hungarian-born artist Joseph Domjan (1907-1992), pictured here, will also be exhibited, along with a kilim rug from the Oltenia region of Romania, a rya rug from Helsinki, Finland, and a late-19th century coverlet from the island of Sardinia, an autonomous region of Italy located in the Mediterranean Sea.
