  <<  April  >>
Saturday April 1st
9:00am - 4:00pm
Backward & Forward: 20th Century Quilts exhibit
Location: Kentucky Museum - Elizabeth Richardson Quilt Gallery
Description:

More than 30 quilts and wall hangings illustrate how Kentucky quiltmakers looked to both the past and to the future for inspiration. In the first part of the 20th century, Americans' interest in their Colonial heritage contributed to a revival in quiltmaking, yet modern trends such as Art Nouveau and Art Deco also brought a contemporary feel to the work of some quilters and pattern designers.  The revival that began around the time of the U.S. Bicentennial also had a dual effect with some quilters choosing traditional methods while others began experimenting with modern fabrics, techniques, and motifs.  This divergence in approaches continued into the 21st century.

These quilts were selected from the Kentucky Museum's nationally significant collection.

This gallery will be closed to the public April 12-14.
