SVAC Opening Reception: “The Red Dress” Exhibition

July 1, 2023 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

13 years. 50 countries. 374 contributors. Millions of stitches. 1 red dress.

The Red Dress project, conceived by British artist Kirstie Macleod, provides an artistic platform for women around the world, many of whom are vulnerable and live in poverty, to tell their personal stories through embroidery.

SVAC is proud to be the first arts organization in the United States to exhibit the Red Dress as part of a multi-year tour. The Red Dress will also travel to The Frick Pittsburgh and Fuller Craft Museum.
