Bechtler

My friends Jennie and Donna and I went to the new Bechtler Museum last month for our regular monthly outing.  It was amazing.  Not least is this Firebird which is outside the main entrance.  Charlotte is blessed with so much good, public art, but this is absolutely my favorite.

If you haven’t been, go.  You will learn a lot about color, form, and texture; and that’s what we knitters are really all about.  Also know that the Bechtler’s first curator was Michael Godfrey, a very skilled knitter and fiber artist.  His stamp is upon this place and it is a gift to us all.

  1. What a fab photo! Looks like the Bechtler Museum is living up to his family’s collection (obsession?) of modern art — love it! Look forward to touring it some day — and perhaps we’ll see some ‘extreme knitting art’ appear there at an unusual, unexpected time and place???
