Telling Stories features artifacts from TMC's permanent collection. The exhibition examines the "human impulse to capture real and imagined experiences". From modern issues like traffic fatalities in India to a 12th century tragic love story from Persia, each artifact tells a story within the beautiful tapestry. This exhibit was very small and not for everyone. I enjoyed the beautiful workmanship and detail of the artifacts, but those who are not interested in traditional textile art, would not enjoy this exhibit.
