Discover a selection of quilts from the Marbaum Collection - a unique collection of 87 art quilts generously donated to SJMQT for its 40th anniversary - on display for the first time. Marvin and Hilary Fletcher started acquiring quilts in the early 1980’s, eventually establishing a formidable trove of works from nearly 80 artists, bearing witness to the diversity and vitality of quilt-making from that time, to the present. The Marbaum Collection is both an invaluable resource for artists and researchers to explore, and a deeply personal collection woven together by the Fletchers’ long standing passion for and philanthropic support of art quilts. The gifted collection, unprecedented in size and scope for SJMQT, will travel internationally before joining its new home in San Jose in 2020.
