Modern Quilts: Designs of a New Century -  Schweinfurth Art Center  •   Auburn, New York
June 29, 2018 - August 19, 2018

Learn the history of modern quilts and enjoy their bright colors and graphic designs in this visiting exhibit curated by the Modern Quilt Guild.

Modern quilts are utilitarian art. They are graphic, improvisational, or minimalist. They tell stories, break the rules, and make a statement. Modern quilts are creative expressions made with needle, thread, fabric, and time, expressing today’s aesthetic through a generations-old traditional craft.

Experience the power of modern quilts firsthand in this exhibit of 60 innovative and inspiring quilts that represent the best modern quilts and quilters of the past decade. This exhibit showcases the work of modern quilters past and present and tells the story of modern quilting from its earliest roots and influences to today.
