INSPIRED by ELVIS -  Virginia Quilt Museum  •   Harrisonburg, Virginia
July 23, 2019 - December 14, 2019

Elvis Lives! In fact, there have been a number of Elvis sightings at the Virginia Quilt Museum! Donna DeSoto, curator  

On the heels of Inspired by the Beatles and  Inspired by the National Parks comes Inspired by Elvis. Fiber artists from Singapore to Australia to Slovakia to Canada to California all were motivated by one common force: a love and appreciation of Elvis Presley. The 96 (36” x 36”) quilts in this collection represent a wide range of techniques, interpretations and abilities. Master artist work is displayed along side quilts by first-timers.

Subjects depict quilts of Elvis in his early life and of Elvis the entertainer. More than 60 of them depict a famous Elvis song, from whimsical to abstract portrayals. Try to guess the names of the songs as you look at the list of those included.
