Theresa-India Young Scholarship Exhibition

Artwork by Theresa-India Young
Tuesday, September 4, 2018 to Tuesday, November 27, 2018

For the inaugural exhibition in the Frances Euphemia Thompson Gallery, the College is proud to display the work of another artist with strong ties to MassArt, Theresa-India Young (1950-2008), as well as work by current students and alumni who have received the memorial scholarship that honors her. A talented weaver with an encyclopedic knowledge of techniques, materials, and methods from numerous cultures throughout the world, her areas of expertise included Backstrap, Ikat, Kente, European tapestry, and Navajo weaving. Considering herself a weaving griot, Young shared her knowledge with students at several institutions throughout Boston, including MassArt, and bequeathed her sizable research collection of fibers books to MassArt’s Godine Library.

The Theresa-India Young Scholarship Exhibition features the work of Theresa-India Young and scholarship recipients:

Zoe Grinder ‘19
Alexander Sebastianus Hartanto ‘18
Rachel Cass Oswald ‘15
Sarah Peloquin ’16
Emma Welty ‘14

The Theresa-India Young scholarship, established at MassArt in 2013, is granted each year to an upper classman working in fibers.
