MoCC is pleased to welcome Martha Banyas, collector and world traveler, who will present a brief history of batik cloth in Java, Indonesia. Recognized by UNESCO as an Intangible World Heritage, the art and craft of batik has a singular and rich legacy that is intrinsically tied to the cultural life of Indonesia. Banyas will discuss batik’s early role in sea trade, its influence on historic events, and its current cultural and economic status. Using batiks from her personal collection, Banyas will introduce the techniques of the craft, and survey some regional and historic styles.
