Intricate and painstakingly created textile crafts of the ethnic minority people of southwestern China are on display at Cal State Northridge's Oviatt Library through August 28.
The exhibit, "Embroidery, Batik and Tie-Dye: Textiles Crafts of Southwestern China," explores how these intensely colorful textiles are created and features several examples from the private collection of the show's curator, CSUN librarian Angela Lew.
"Our goal with this exhibit is to help people understand that China, like this country, is made up of many different types of people," Lew said. "And like in this country, there are so many different types of crafts and ways of expressing individual cultures."
The exhibit features the work mainly of Miao and Bai people in a mostly poor and mountainous region of southwestern China.
