> DESCRIPTION

Like other domestic arts largely practiced by women, quiltmaking has been undervalued, its artists nearly always anonymous, their artistry unrecognized. This exhibition surveys twentieth-century African American artists from the South, restoring their identities and drawing in examples that range from stunning abstract compositions to brilliantly-conceived tributes to cultural icons like Jackie Robinson. This exhibition is organized by the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, Montgomery, Alabama.
