Artist and designer Debbie Apple-Presser sees beauty and potential in objects that most people might consider discarding. For Project Tunic, she is creating a Wari-inspired garment of woven brown paper bags that will be dyed for a richer color and then stamped with a decorative pattern on the front and back. Her work is inspired by the weaving techniques, bright patterns and the distinctive face neck vessels found in the Wari exhibition. Project Tunic will be on January 4, 2013 as part of MIX: Runway at the museum.
