Details

For many travelers and tourists, a small Egyptian village near Cairo, Harrania, is considered an essential stop along their international journey; the city become famous years ago for its charming tapestries woven by Egyptian children. LASM’s collection in the Colonnade Gallery includes a number of these tapestries attributed to the Kunooz school and dating from as early as the 1970s. The school follows the philosophy of Dr. Ramses Wissa Wassef, who believed that creativity is innate and that teaching uneducated children who were isolated from modern civilization could help them learn self-expression through weaving. Check out these tapestries and more among LASM’s many art exhibitions this summer. 100 River Road South. (225) 344-5272. lasm.org.
