Quilting has long been recognized as an important facet of American history and individual quilts have been sought out as important historical documents. The lush quilts featured in this exhibition represent the resilience and progress of Black Americans in general and particularly Black women. The beauty of these quilts pay homage to their domestic, traditional, utilitarian roots, while at the same time display the expressions of enduring artistic themes: the beauty of spontaneity; the energy of motion; the importance of remembrance and the imaginative use of color.
