Be among the first to experience Rose B. Simpson: Dream House.

In collaboration with The Fabric Workshop and Museum, Artist-in-Residence Rose B. Simpson has created a one-of-a-kind, introspective exhibition. Inspired by Pueblo architecture, her ancestral landscape, and magical realism, this multi-room installation explores the imprints and through-lines that connect and orient Simpson’s life as an artist, an Indigenous person, and a mother. Presented as the artist’s contemplation on kinship and her own domestic narrative, Dream House is an immersive installation comprised of all new ceramics, textiles, sculptures, paintings, and Simpson’s first-ever works in video, all created in collaboration with the FWM Studio team specifically for this exhibition.

Light refreshments will be served.
