Century of African-American Quilts

A Century of African American Quilts


Look at this beauty here - gorgeous!




A Century of African-American Quilts Through May 2018 This display showcases twelve colorful and sensational quilts, half which have actually never ever before been seen by the public, covering more than a century after 1875. The quilts of African Americans differed extensively, depending upon the date, place or community, the function for which the quilt was made, and the personal creative vision of the quiltmaker. The vibrant designs and brilliant colors of the quilts included in the exhibition speak with a longstanding cultural and artistic tradition within which the ladies created and produced their quilts.
