Eric Mindling Presents “Living Threads; A Portrait of Cultural Diversity, Roots and Belonging told through Cloth”
For our Four Corners friends, you can support Dr. Laurie Webster’s ongoing Cedar Mesa Perishables Project research by attending a guest lecture by photographer Eric Mindling, who has lived in Oaxaca, Mexico since 1992.
Tuesday, December 5th at 6:30 PM, photographer, storyteller, and smoky kitchen researcher, Eric Mindling, will draw us into a world of ancient humanity, deeply rooted cultures caught in an avalanche of change and questions about place and belonging that are very close to home. Eric’s endeavor, the Living Threads Project, is an ambitious two-year photo documentary in Oaxaca, Mexico of the traditional dressways and the people who continue to wear the singular clothing of their community.
Tickets to benefit the Perishables Project are tax deductible and will be sold at the Sunflower Theatre for $20.
