The deYoung Museum in San Francisco will kick off a “From the Exotic to the Mystical,” an exhibition of textiles from the museum’s permanent collection on May 4.

According to the museum, the show features pieces representing “15 centuries of textile arts,” including English embroideries, Spanish laces, tapestries, and “a set of elaborate French ecclesiastical vestments from the reign of Louis XIV.”

The exhibition honors Anna Gray Bennett, the founding curator for textile arts at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, who died last year.
