Title: Notice Beauty
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Student: Crafts and Material Studies: Fibers and Textiles, 2026
Riley Klein, a freshman studying Fibers and Textiles at College for Creative Studies, is inspired by finding beauty in the mundane. Incorporating a youthful fascination with the world into her art, she enjoys working with textures, clashing colors, and pushing the boundaries of her medium to convey her messages. Klein has been working in fibers longer than she can remember, and became fully immersed during her freshman year working in the Kingswood Weaving Studio. Klein encourages viewers to also notice the beauty in the things that are not beautiful, reinstating the childlike fascination with life that is lost to some.
