OURstory: Human Rights Stories in Fabric

This exhibition, created by artists from around the world and curated by Susanne Jones, focuses on the history of the battles for human, civil, and political rights, and their continuing developments today.



New Quilts from an Old Favorite: Wheel of Fortune

This exhibition features the winning and finalist quilts from around the world in a competition for the most innovative interpretations of the traditional Wheel of Fortune pattern.



Michael A. Cummings: African Jazz Series
