The Newark Museum of Art : Four Quiltmakers, Four American Stories: October 08, 2020 – Through Fall 2021
December 31, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until December 31, 2020
2nd Floor, North Wing
This installation features quilts made between 1864 to 2010 from the Museum’s Decorative Arts collection.
Quiltmakers, working alone or together, tell stories by assembling and stitching fabric into layered images that warm loved ones, decorate beds or hang on walls. Each quilt is as unique as its maker or group of makers, whether replicating traditional patterns or creating new designs. The materials–new, store-bought fabric, recycled scraps from old clothing, or second-hand textiles – as well as the images are themselves thoughtful choices that add meaning to the stories.
