Quilt Art: Examining the Narrative in KY Quilts

Thursday, March 14th | 6:00pm - 7:00pm

In celebration of the artistry associated with the process and history of the making of quilts, Pearlie Johnson from the Kentucky Humanities Council will discuss 19th century quilts made by black women living and working on slave plantations, traditional quilts made by African American women of the 20th century, and contemporary art quilts made by women of all cultural groups of the 21st century. Her study of quilts in Kentucky is aimed at examining cross-cultural parallels in technique and assemblage, as well as revealing unique designs.
