What’s Tech Got to Do With It?

Free Community Open House!

Sunday, February 10

11am - 3pm

In 2010, the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles launched its signature event, the International TECHstyle Art Biennial (ITAB). Returning now for its fourth incarnation, ITAB is a juried exhibition of work by artists merging fiber media with new information and communication technologies in their artistic processes, as a medium of artistic expression, and/or in the content of their work. Leveraging its location in Silicon Valley, ITAB serves as the premiere platform for introducing the work of artists exploring the intersection of fiber and technology to a global community.

There will be activities and events throughout the day. Stop by and check out:

  • Tech-fashion demonstration with Physicist Kitty Yeung

  • LED Light-Up Bracelets with Corinne Okada

  • STEAM demonstration with Sander van de Bor

  • Embroidered cards

  • …and more!

Stay tuned for more details!
