Perspectives: Art, Craft, Design & the Studio Quilt

Quilts by 21 contemporary artists were assembled from the permanent collection of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum and complemented by several related works in various mediums owned by local collectors.

Michael James, internationally recognized quilt artist and chair of UNL's Department of Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design and fellow fiber artist and New York City-based art critic Sandra Sider curated the exhibition and wrote the accompanying catalog (available at the museum kiosk or online) and audio tour. Works in the exhibition were from five countries and ranged from abstract to whimsically concrete.

The contemporary studio quilt evolved from earlier quilting traditions. This exhibition highlighted how today's innovators give quilts new meanings.

 

Thank you to Friends of Fiber Art International and Textiles, Merchandising & Fashion Design for making this exhibition possible.
