A Piece of Her Mind: Culture and Technology in American Quilts

Daily, Now - December 31, 2019
Times Vary

Today’s culture makes it easy for American women to engage in the world around them, thanks to advances in both women’s rights and technology. But between 1820 and 1920, many women chose to respond to current events and trends creatively, through one of their prescribed activities: needlework. Quilts allowed women to engage in the world while conforming to their era’s gender roles, which restricted middle-class women to the private, domestic sphere. This exhibition presents quilts that reflect their makers’ interest in their world.

Exhibit open Monday through Saturday; closed Sundays and federal holidays.
