Land Without End and Other Works by Theo Leffmann (Friday, July 9–Sunday, August 29)
The fiber art of Chicagoan Theo Leffmann (1911-1996) evokes the ancient and the exotic, echoing pre-Columbian and non-Western processes and forms with a distinct personal vision. Explore her colorful, richly-textured and playful sculptural objects, weavings and wall hangings at the Block this summer. Free guided tours take place Sundays at 1 pm.
Both events are at the Mary and Leigh Block Museum of Art, Northwestern University
