Artist Textiles: Picasso to Warhol, November 21, 2014 - March 29, 2015, American Textile History Museum, Lowell, Massachusetts.

In its exclusive U.S. debut, Picasso to Warhol traces the history of 20th century art in textiles. Highlights include work by Marc Chagall, Salvador Dalí, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Andy Warhol.
