Dot Replinger would have been 95 years old today. She lived happily in her house until three days before her death last May, after a short illness. She left behind a large body of art work, notably her works in fiber. One her favorite pieces, Olive Angel, will later this year be on view at the Krannert Art Museum at the University of Illinois.
As museum director Jon Seydl wrote,
“We are thankful to have such an outstanding example of fiber art in the collection—a striking work that would make an impact in any museum, It’s particularly meaningful not only because KAM was her museum but also because it allows both of your parents to have a presence in perpetuity in Champaign-Urbana . . .”
