How beautiful are these textiles?! I am in love! A few weeks ago, I flew in and out of SFO. If you have ever flown in and out of SFO, you may already know that our airport has an amazing museum program where they rotate special exhibits throughout the terminals. I have to admit, I normally walk past the majority of the exhibits when I am at the airport. I tend to focus on getting to my gate, or if I am arriving, I focus on getting to my ride or baggage claim. This last time was different.
Instead of traveling with my entire family, or alone for business, I was only with my now college-age daughter. We arrived early for our red eye flight, so my eyes began to wander as we walked towards our gate. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted the beautiful textiles on display in the SFO Museum “From Pineapple to Pina” exhibit. Wow! This was in an airport? What???
I quickly gravitated towards the exhibit, much to the confusion of my daughter. She wasn’t aware of the SFO Museum since I usually walked right past it. I am so glad we stopped this time! The textiles are absolutely amazing. Can you believe these delicate and intricate fabrics are handmade and woven out of pineapple leaves thread? It really is mind-blowing.
Next time you take a trip through SFO, arrive a little bit early and give yourself time to enjoy the exhibits throughout the airport. You never know what magical exhibit you might find! You can learn more about the SFO Museum and this exhibit at SFOMuseum.org.
Thanks for stopping by, and happy travels!
