Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum (PMPM) will host a book discussion, “From Artist to Amateur: Embroidery and Modern Art in 1920s and 30s America” on the Modern Embroidery Movement with author Cynthia Fowler on Wednesday, May 23, from 3pm to 4pm in the Mayflower Room. This talk will tell the story behind the embroidery called The Mayflower. The embroidery was designed by American artist Mary Ellen Crisp, one of five women connected to what has been dubbed “the modern embroidery movement.”
Ms. Fowler, PhD., is an art historian and Professor of Art at Emmanuel College. In addition to her new book The Modern Embroidery Movement, she has published the book Hooked Rugs: Finding Art’s meaning in Museums. She is currently completing a project on transcultural exchange between Ireland and America. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be provided.
