Forming Our Lives: Three Women, Three Phenomenal Stories at San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles

Forming Our Lives: Three Women, Three Phenomenal Stories
Forming Our Lives: Three Women, Three Phenomenal Stories will run from July 26-Sept 14, 2014 at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles.

In the exhibit Forming Our Lives, three women recount personal stories that have affected and continue to shape their lives.

Bonnie J. Smith found herself literally swimming upstream in her life after a work related injury forced her to use a wheel chair. Carol Larson was surgically shortened six inches as a teenager to make her a better fit for society. Cristina Velazquez’s work questions the world that says, “Women must be and do certain things.”

The artwork they have created continually asks the question, “Why do certain situations happen in our lives and how do we overcome them?” and gives insight into how three women have answered those hard questions.
