Alice Hudson was a lifelong, dedicated artist who delved into the world of the imagination, creating small human and animal figures—and, indeed, a world to astonish and delight. Procession, made by Hudson over more than 25 years until late in her life, for her daughter, Elizabeth, who collaborated with Hudson on various creations. Elizabeth Bronson has kindly offered as a loan to Mingei International Museum.

This work, never before shown publicly in its completed form, adds a touch of the fanciful and fantastic to the Museum’s 2015 series of exhibitions, AMERICAN ICONS, and serves as a memorial to Hudson.

Adjacent to Procession, one can find A Palace for Wednesday, Hudson’s beloved work, which has been a treasure of the Museum’s collection since 1999 and which recently was rehoused in the Museum’s expanded Doll and Toy Gallery.
