Description: Quilts have evolved dramatically in form, fashion, and function during their long and distinguished history. In this exhibition Jean Burks, senior curator at the Shelburne Museum, will explore the wide range of quilts intended as bed coverings, articles of clothing, furniture accessories, wall decoration, and finally, three-dimensional room sculpture. Illustrating a variety of techniques, designs, and cultural styles, the pieces selected will showcase the work of North American quilters working from the beginning of the 19th century to the present. February 24 through June 16, 2013. Major funding for this exhibition was generously provided by The Coby Foundation.
