Gretchen Romey-Tanzer (Crafts Fellow ’05) is one of the painters and weavers who created works to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the anthem “America the Beautiful.”
The exhibition, curated by Cape Cod painter Shawne Nelson, pairs teams of painters and weavers together to interpret the lyrics of the anthem (from a poem by Cape Cod writer Katharine Lee Bates, incidentally).
America the Beautiful runs at the Massachusetts State House in Boston July 19-30. Read more about the exhibition.
