This last Fall-Winter visual artist Dana Lynn Louis spent 9½ weeks traveling to Senegal for Thread, an artist residency sponsored by the Joseph and Anni Albers Foundation. The Alberses—artists from the famed Bauhaus school and refugees from Nazi Germany—spent a lifetime revealing the wonders of color, textiles, and artistic process so that they could be enjoyed across the planet. The Albers Foundation established Le Korsa in 2005 to provide medical care, education, nutrition, and cultural enrichment in some of the poorest and most isolated regions of the world. Louis' sojourn also included a site visit to the Cultural Center Ko-Falen in Mali, West Africa.
