Harold Keshishian's Textile Rug Morning Part 1
While Walker is the new director and in many ways the future of the Textile Museum Harold is not really the past as much as he is part of the bedrock upon which the Museum is founded.
HK first became a Trustee in 1969.
Of course if anyone is up to the task of guiding the TM into the future it is Daniel Walker. He is among the most serious scholars in the field of rugs.
I have to be careful of what I say about R. John Howe. He is a humble man and just wants me to say that he has a keen interest and quite a few rug books, but that he makes make no claims about "knowing" much of anything about rugs. So for the sake of his humbleness and modesty I will not point out the excellent work he does on Turkotek or how bright he is.
Here is John working on a photo essay that no doubt will be posted on Turkotek in no time. I also offered him any of my images if there is a picture that does turn out.
