Consulting Curator Dr. Linda S. McIntosh is arranging a morning devoted to the topic of indigo. Natural indigo has historically been an important trade item, and its use has been documented throughout the world. The word indigo is derived from the Greek word indikon and Roman word indicum, referring to India, thought to the oldest center of indigo production. A short presentation on indigo dyeing in Laos will compliment the viewing of Indigo: A World of Blue, a 60 minute documentary by Maiwa Production. Examples of indigo-dyed textiles from The Collection will be on display.

The event is free.
