A Rare Occurrence

A Rare Occurrence

On August 21, Lincoln will experience its first total eclipse in recorded history. While solar eclipses occur about once every 18 months, they are typically only seen in a specific area once every 375 years. To celebrate this moment, the International Quilt Study Center & Museum will open a special pop-up exhibition of quilts August 18-20 in the Dillow Conservation Work Room.

The nine quilts on display consist of traditional American, studio art and international pieces. This will include an indigo Rising Sun pattern made circa 1840-1860 in Ohio and two dated historical pieces—Stars and Comet and Rainbow Quilt—both made in 1892 in Pennsylvania. There will also be a Godhari from Maharashtra, India, and art quilts by Jean Ray Laury, Olga Prins Lukowski and Terrie Hancock Mangat.
