Opens In the Neutrogena Wing
The exhibition explores the aesthetics of Amish quilts
by considering what the quilting tradition grew out of
and how they changed in a changing world. Approximately
35 quilts from the museum and local collectors' collections
illustrate religious proscriptions, westward migration,
and interaction with 'English' neighbors. (Photo, right:
