Cloth as Community: Hmong Textiles in America

November 11, 2020 - January 7, 2021

Hmong flower cloth (or paj ntaub) is one of the world’s great textile traditions and an excellent example of cloth as community. Despite its deep roots in Hmong culture, this complex art was not widely known outside Asia until after the Vietnam War, when Hmong refugees arrive in the United States.

The May Museum is proud to present this exhibition of 28 original textiles created by Hmong women in the United States, including designs derived from traditional paj ntaub and the embroidered story cloth form that developed in Thai refugee camps.

Admission: $6 adults / $4 seniors & children
