About this event

This spring, join us for two new exhibitions, What That Quilt Knows About Me and Material Witness: Folk and Self-Taught Artists at Work.

What That Quilt Knows About Me will explore the deeply personal and emotional power associated with the experience of making and living with quilts. Featuring approximately 40 quilts and related works of art from the 19th to 21st centuries, the exhibition presents quilts as intimate objects that give us insight into the people and places that made them.

Material Witness: Folk and Self-Taught Artists at Work will explore how artists learn with and through material engagement, often in ways that exceed conventional frameworks for artistic training. This exhibition is the first in a series of thematic shows drawn from the Museum’s collection and generously supported by a grant from the Henry Luce Foundation.

Visitor Guidelines:

  • Face coverings are recommended but not required
  • If you do not have a face covering, one can be provided to you free of charge

For those who cannot join us in person, the Museum will continue to offer opportunities to engage online with new programs, concerts, and art-making activities throughout the fall. All virtual programs are free with optional suggested donations to support ongoing programming. A continually updated schedule is available on the Museum’s website.
