Salley Mavor: Bedtime Stitches


The touring exhibition, which will tour for 4 years, is a unique opportunity for the public to see the detail and 3-dimensional quality of Salley Mavor’s actual hand-stitched artwork, which was photographed and printed in her picture book, "My Bed: Enchanting Ways to Fall Asleep around the World" (2020, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt). The collection of artwork takes the viewer on an international journey, showing where children sleep in varying cultures and living environments around the world.
