Special Exhibition – Quilting with a Cause in the Museum’s 2nd Floor Curator’s Choice Gallery

A new exhibit at the At The Bishop explores how quilting runs through the fabric of life in America. The exhibit showcases quilts from the South Florida Museum’s collection and features quilts that showcase a variety of styles as well as lifetime milestones. The exhibit also explains aspects of early quilting, including how quilters used plant materials to make fabric dyes, as well as quilting styles, the intricate needlework used in quilting and how quilts were used to celebrate causes like civil rights in the 1960s and raise awareness about the AIDS epidemic beginning in the late 1980s.
