DENVER (CBS4) – “SPUN – Adventures in Textiles” is a wide ranging exhibit that explores the history and the meaning of textiles around the world.

From bedclothes to artwork — there is an amazing range of possibilities being showcased by the Denver Art Museum.

There are nine different exhibits all through the museum, and it includes a photography section.

SPUN includes some things CBS4 Critic at Large Greg Moody loved, such as Catholic vestments from the 1880s in France that are made out of silk and thread and a Japanese fireman’s coat from the 19th century that they would soak in water before they went into fight the fire.

Some of the SPUN exhibit is on display in the Western Art area. Spanish shawls there feature intricate handiwork, and there’s a look at the popularity of jeans in the 1900s.

SPUN – Adventures in Textiles is open at the Denver Art Museum through Sept. 22. The exhibit is included in your Denver Art Museum admission price.

The museum is free on the first Saturday of each month.
