American Quilts: Selections from the Winterthur Collection at Milwaukee Art Museum * 22 May - 6 September 2010
Winterthur has one of the world’s finest collections of early American quilts and they will be on view at the Milwaukee Art Museum from 22 May – 6 September, 2010. This is the first-ever travelling exhibition of Winterthur’s quilts, featuring 40 stunning examples never exhibited before which evidence the views, faith, social and economic networks of women of the early Republic.
The exhibition is organized by Winterthur Museum & Country Estate and is curated by Linda Eaton of Winterthur Museum and organized at the Milwaukee Art Museum by Mel Buchanan, Liz Flaig, and Catherine Sawinski. In case you live in the wrong hemisphere and cannot make the exhibition, you might be interested to know that Linda Eaton authored a book containing images from the wealth of 400 quilts at Winterthur Museum
