Quilt Week Exhibits



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

Michael, a self-taught quilter, brings years of painting and collage skills to his quilt making. Inspired by jazz and working in the narrative tradition, Cummings and his sewing machine tell stories of the African American experience across historical, cultural, philosophical, and mythical realms.
