Gallery Talk - Text and Textiles: Crafting the Lives of Guy and Irene Buzzard

Thursday, 01 May, 2014 @ 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM | Cost:FREE

Guy and Irene Buzzard, Eastern's third presidential family, shared a passion for handicraft and textile arts.  The objects they collected and produced reflect many of the great changes of the twentieth century.  This exhibition explores how they crafted their lives together for over fifty years.  The exhibition draws from the Buzzard textiles collection within the Tarble Arts Center's folk arts collection, and from the EIU Archives in Booth Library. EIU Historical Administration graduate students will talk about the exhibition, created for the Tarble through the 2014 Historical Administration program.
