Primal Forces: Wind (SAQA Global Exhibition)

Primal Forces Wind


Wind is the second in a three-part series of Primal Forces exhibitions (Earth, Wind, Fire) premiering at the National Quilt Museum.

Wind is the movement of air; you cannot see it or hold it in your hand, but it provides a powerful source of energy essential to our planet. From a light breeze to natural hazards like hurricanes or tornadoes, wind transforms life daily. 

Exhibition Benefactor: Frank Klein

National Quilt Museum, Paducah, Kentucky - August 4, 2023 - January 9, 2024
