Leisure Suit Series, an exhibition of eight fiber artworks by Catherine Reinhart, gallery director and artist-in-residence at the Iowa State University Design on Main Gallery, will be featured Feb. 1 through April 30 at the Iowa Law Library as part of the Iowa Arts Council’s Art at the Library Series.

Caregivers have a unique power to provide comfort, ease suffering and connect people. Through the repetitive manipulation of individual threads from a discarded polyester quilt, Reinhart seeks to mimic the ritual actions and deep consideration caregivers provide to their community, ultimately restoring value and breathing new life into a once forgotten object.
