From Heart to Hand: African American Quilts from the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts
Chicago, IL 60614
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.
