Handstitched Worlds: The Cartography of Quilts

Sunday, October 11, 2020, to Sunday, January 3, 2021
Wood Gallery

Drawn from the extraordinary national collection of the American Museum of Folk Art, this exhibition will present more than two dozen American quilts. The intricate works are a testament to the handiwork of generations of textile artists, and tell stories from a lasting legacy of resourcefulness and creativity.

“Infused with history and memory, quilts are living records of our traditions, experiences, relationships, beliefs, and future aspirations. In the same way that a map is a pocket-sized abstraction of the world beyond what can be seen a quiltmaker’s choice of fabric and design reveals insights into the topography of her world and her place within it,” says Sarah Margoles-Pineo, the exhibition’s curator.

This exhibition has been organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York.

Museum Hours:
Tuesday – Saturday: 10am – 5pm
Sunday: 12pm – 5pm
Closed Mondays and most national holidays.
