FEB 12 Gallery Talk: For the Love of Quilts!

What's love got to do with it?

Take a break from your work to learn how making quilts is a labor of love.

Looking for some artistic and intellectual nourishment during your lunch break? Join us on Wednesdays for short gallery talks to explore highlights from special exhibitions and NMWA’s collection with museum staff.

This week, Digital Media Specialist Laura Hoffman discusses selections from Workt by Hand: Hidden Labor and Historical Quilts. Love is the common thread to these soft masterpieces in this special Valentine’s Day-themed gallery talk.

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Over time, quilts have been revered as nostalgic emblems of the past, dismissed as women’s work, and hailed as examples of American ingenuity. This exhibition breaks new ground by examining quilts through the lens of contemporary feminist theory.
