PRESIDENT OBAMA: A CELEBRATION IN ART QUILTS

Opening Reception: Friday, February 13, 6-9 pm.
Cafritz Foundation Arts Center
930 King Street
Silver Spring, Maryland
This show, organized by Susan Walen, includes the work of 60 fiber artists from all across the United States and as far away as Australia. This is a quilt show of amazing diversity -- among the quilters and their art. Our work is in tribute to our new President, in gratitude for the hope and inspiration he has brought us. We present these quilts at an unforgettable moment in our country's history.
Many of the participating quilters in this project have had the honor of being interviewed by Karen Musgrave of the Alliance for American Quilts. Our stories will be saved in the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. Alliance for American Quilts
