The lecture is Wed evening, Aug 19, from 6:30 – 8 pm, in the Sharp Auditorium, in the Hamilton Building. It is free.

You do need to RSVP to Mary Davis (Asian Arts Dept), 720-913-0166 or mdavis@denverartmuseum.org.

Both sponsoring DAM art departments really want to reach out to the Denver fiber community. I am hoping we can help them fill the auditorium, as well as take advantage of this opportunity. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks in advance. — Dale Zitek
