The Legacy of Blue

November 19, 2001 – January 25, 2002

Maltwood Art Museum and Gallery

This multi-media exhibit, presented in conjunction with the Canadian Society for Asian Arts, will feature pieces from a variety of cultures and time periods. Selected items from the Maltwood collection will augment the CSAA’s travelling exhibition, coming together to celebrate the historical and cultural significance of the colour that changed the world. The exhibit will include everything from ancient Egyptian artifacts to contemporary textiles and fashion design, and will highlight materials including cobalt, turquoise, lapis lazuli and indigo.
