#24, Loie Fuller tribute, CathyO
Earlier this month, a friend and I went out to the dedication of the new wing at the Maryhill Museum of Art in Washington. Loie Fuller, a serpentine dancer from the turn of the 20th century, was very influential in helping bring the arts to Eastern Washington. She established her own style of dance using yards and yards of silk, frequently attached to long poles at the arms, and then she swirled and twirled her way into the hearts of high society in France. One of her dances, La Mer, was performed by a local dance troupe. They danced on miles of billowing silk, depicting the ocean waves.
