The New York Times has just published an article on a wonderful exhibition, Seas of Blue: Asian Indigo Dye at the Charles B. Wang Center at Stony Brook University. 41 artworks make up the show featuring both works from contemporary artists and traditional textiles from various countries in Asia. The highlight of the exhibition is the effort given towards educating the audience about indigo and how various cultures in Asia, harvest, process and use the diverse plants. Jinyoung Jin, associate director of cultural programs at Stony Brook University’s Charles B. Wang Center is interviewed and explains how the show is organized.
