Professor Fay Frick, Ph.D., is an art historian from the University of Tucson.

OUT OF THE EAST featured over eighty pre-1948 historical Palestinian textiles and ornaments from Mingei International’s permanent collection, supplemented by loans from a private collector. These richly embroidered dresses and jewelry were displayed in context with a geographically designed map of the historical region called Palestine. In addition, objects of daily life such as cushions, vessels, rugs, and calligraphy were displayed in a recreated traditional Palestinian living room.
