quilt show I heard

quilt show

I heard a bit on the radio the other
day about "The Quilts of Gee's Bend", a museum exhibition that's doing a current tour. You can hear the show and check out some links at
NPR. Gee's Bend is/was a very isolated African American
community in Alabama and I find the quilts quite compelling and inspirational. They're vibrant and dynamic -- if a well-executed
prototypical quilt can be likened to classical music, these are definitely jazz.

If you are in a city this show is visiting, check it out! I am thinking about whether I can manage a trip to one of these cities at the right time.
