Hear from the High’s Curator of Decorative Arts and Design, Monica Obniski, as she talks to SCAD fibers professor Jessica Smith and SCAD liberal arts professor Susan Falls.
Smith and Falls have recently published Overshot: The Political Aesthetics of Woven Textiles from the Antebellum South and Beyond, in which they discuss how “overshot” coverlets were, and continue to be, significant examples of material culture and what we can learn by examining the exhibition and interpretation of these materials within American public history. Get a behind-the-scenes look at the High’s “overshot” coverlets currently in storage.
Interested in purchasing the book? Visit the High’s Shop in person or online for a copy of Overshot.
