American Quilts: Sewn Stories

February 18 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

On view February 18 through April 30

Quilts tell stories. They commemorate events, celebrate individuals, relate family or community histories, and are symbols of patriotism or emblems of women’s empowerment. Sewn Stories will explore the narrative quality of quilts made from the 19th century to today.

The exhibition is free to MWPAI members.
General admission is $8; free to all 18 and under.
