    Name: Quarantine Quilts Exhibition
    Date: August 7, 2020 - November 15, 2020
    Event Description:

    In early March 2020, WMQFA launched a collaborative art project meant to encourage artists staying at home to keep creating. This open call invited participants from throughout the world to submit a 12 x 12-inch quilt block documenting their individual and collective experiences.

    The museum has already received over 400 blocks from artists throughout Wisconsin, as well as many other states, and as far away as the Netherlands and Israel. Each block tells the story of family, friends, love, community, support, inward and outward reflections, new hobbies and seasoned expertise, joy, sadness, and shared experiences all through the medium of fiber.

    The quilt blocks demonstrate an enormous amount of diversity in technique: embroidery, collage, felt, weaving, and rug hooking are just a few of the processes on display. Beginning in June the museum started to make these blocks into quilts and will continue doing so throughout the summer. After months of creation and submissions, come see the Quarantine Quilts together in the exhibition, The Quarantine Quilt

    This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Ellie and Julian De Lia.
