Last weekend was my splurge trip to Philadelphia. I went up to view some of the exhibits in Fiber Philadelphia, an international biennial festival of cutting-edge fiber and textile art. Prior to the trip, it seemed a very self-indulgent thing to do - flying across the country just to look at art. Now I realize that it was a very good decision. In addition to viewing truly amazing work, I came back energized, motivated and inspired to move ahead with my own work. I'll be sharing more of my trip over the next few weeks - there is too much to cover in one blog post.
Here are a few photos from an exhibit at the Philadelphia City Hall building.
