More Info

A juried exhibition of fiber art created by the Artist Circle Alliance to protest the Trump administration’s actions and policies. We seek to address current issues including climate change, sexual assault, immigration, the refugee crisis, racism, and sexism.

The art in this exhibition expresses a range of emotions from anger and sadness, to our our hope for positive change. Through much of history, quilts have spoken to many political causes, including the temperance movement, women’s suffrage, nuclear proliferation, and AIDS awareness.

Quilts have always been a means of expression for people whose political voices were silenced. Art is about communication, and the makers of these works are eager to share their viewpoints. Agree? Disagree? We invite you to join us as we examine these issues and consider differing opinions with civilized, constructive conversation. We hope to ultimately gain a better understanding of one another's perspectives and to foster continued change in a positive direction.
