First Friday

4:30 - 7 PM
Description: French quilt artist Sheila Frampton Cooper will give a FREE First Friday lecture at 5:30 p.m.

In “The Twisted Path of My Creative Journey,” Cooper will offer insight into her work, which is currently on display in “Expressions from a Place of Trust: Quilts by Sheila Frampton Cooper” in the museum’s Pumphrey Family Gallery.

This free public lecture is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Byron and Sara Rhodes Dillow Excellence Fund. The Dillows, both graduates of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, made their home in Fremont, Nebraska. In 2008, the Dillow family donated the quilt and fabric collection that includes nearly 250 quilts and 175 printed cotton fragments to the International Quilt Study Center & Museum as a legacy in honor of their parents.

Refreshments and FREE admission to the galleries are also available from 4:30-7 p.m. as part of Lincoln's First Friday Artwalk.
