Join us for a virtual tour of current exhibition Signature Styles: Friendship, Album, and Fundraising Quilts led by exhibition curator and Curator of Folk Art Emelie Gevalt. In the spirit of gathering together while we are apart, Emelie will explore how signature quilts, as collaborative projects often created by a group of women, are visual documents of a shared creative endeavor and records of relationships between quilters and their communities.
Watch a recording of the tour online here.
**Registration for this program is now at capacity. To join the waitlist, please submit your name and email through the Eventbrite ticket page. A recording of the tour will also be shared on our website.**
