If you’re planning to be in New York City this spring, you must make time to visit the American Folk Art Museum which has declared this the Year of the Quilt, a celebration of our unique art form and three centuries of creativity from American quilters. Numerous quilt exhibits will be on display for much of the year, including the current exhibition “Quilts: Masterworks from the American Folk Art Museum,” which highlights the best of the museum’s textile collection. This exhibit will be in place through April 24, 2011.
In March, a special exhibit of more than 650 red and white quilts entitled “Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts,” will mark the largest quilt exhibition ever to be displayed in New York. And best of all, the exhibit is FREE and open to the public!
I strongly encourage you to grab a couple of quilting friends and plan a quilty weekend in NYC!
