Constructed Color: Amish Quilts
This exhibition, on loan from the International Quilt Study Center and Museum at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, features 29 examples from the center’s highly regarded collection. The quilts represent three specific regional groups, each with its own distinctive features, drawn from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, from Midwestern communities and from Mifflin County, Pennsylvania.
The museum is open Tuesday through Sat, 10am-5pm, and Sundays 1-5pm. There's a 46 minute documentary relating to the exhibit that shows daily at 11am, 12:30pm, and 2:30pm.
I am very interested in going to see this, and while I can certainly go on my own, I thought it might be just the thing to get this tiny community back on its feet again.
Are any of you interested? And, if so, what days and times would work best for you?
[The museum is maybe a half-mile from the Dupont Metro (north exit), and maybe 2 miles from the National Cathedral (me).]
