Home Sewn: Quilts From the Lower Mississippi Valley

Fiber
The exhibition examines the generational, social, and economic fabric of an African American quilting community in rural Mississippi. In addition, fieldwork and interviews with present-day African American women quilters give voice to the continuing tradition of quilting in these communities. This is the first in a series of collections-focused exhibitions.
