Tapestries from Egypt
September 1, 2021 @ 8:30 am - January 2, 2022 @ 4:30 pm
Hand-woven, one-of-a-kind, garden-themed tapestries from the Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Centre in Giza, Egypt will be on display in the Legacy Gallery at the Tucson Botanical Gardens.
Created exclusively for the Tucson Botanical Gardens, each tapestry will vividly celebrate the flowers and plants of the Sonoran desert as well as the plant palette from the villages of Egypt and the Nile River. These beautiful, hand-made tapestries can take up to two years for weavers to create.
All of the tapestries on display are for sale and go towards supporting the artist, the Art Centre in Egypt, and the Gardens. Visitors can purchase a tapestry in the Gardens’ Gift Shop during the duration of the show.
