ART | 'Threads of Resistance'


There's no shortage of artistic response to the 2016 presidential election and everything that's happened since. Experience Fiber Art (EFA), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting the freedom of expression through the specific medium of fiber art, is this week bringing its traveling exhibit "Threads of Resistance" to downtown Rochester. Visitors to the exhibit can check out a variety of quilts that were created in response to the current administration's various policies and the current hot-button political and social issues.

"Threads of Resistance" is free and open to the public on Fridays through Sundays, August 17 to 19 and August 24 to 26, from noon to 4 p.m. each of those days, at the Times Square Building (ground floor), 45 Exchange Boulevard. An opening reception will be held Saturday, August 18, from 2 to 4 p.m.
