Dance Doyle

2020 Artist In Residence

Dance Doyle creates large-scale narrative tapestries that incorporate found and discarded objects. At MAD, Doyle will create shaped tapestry portraits informed by her research of the United States’ methods of handling individuals with mental health issues, addiction, and homelessness, with the aim of destigmatizing these experiences.

Doyle received a BFA in textiles from San Francisco State University. She served as vice president of Tapestry Weavers West, and is a member of the American Tapestry Alliance and the Textile Arts Council at the De Young Museum. Her work has been exhibited nationally, including at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, the Legion of Honor Museum, and the De Young Museum in San Francisco.
