Susan Taber Avila, professor of design, has made invaluable contributions to a new book series on fiber art. “Artistry in Fiber” by Anna Lee and E. Ashley Rooney is a three-book series which includes a volume titled “Wearable Art” featuring a foreward by Avila. In addition, examples of Avila’s work appear in all three books.

Published by Schiffer Publishing, the series also includes “Wall Art” which features work by Gyongy Laky (professor emeritus) and “Sculpture.” ”Wearable Art” also includes work by Rebecca Wendlandt (Design alumna).
