Connecting Cultures: An American Artist's Pilgrimage

“Connecting Cultures: An American Artist’s Pilgrimage” celebrates Karen S. Musgrave’s more than 15 years of forging a connection between American quilts and quilts of other countries. She believes that a real exchange of ideas and understanding can best be achieved through close collaboration. Her projects include curating an exhibition of the African American quilts from Gee’s Bend, Alabama, alongside quilts from the Republics of Georgia, Armenia and Kazakhstan. In 2006, she organized and curated an exhibition of American art quilts and Krygyz patchwork in Kyrgyzstan. In the U.S., she has worked closely with Latina quiltmakers and the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago. This lecture will expand your horizons while taking you on a world wind tour full of adventure, stories, culture, people and textiles. Hold on to your hats!  (Large trunk show included) $350 plus expenses
