Muscatine Art Center Exhibit: “Great Cover Ups: Quilts of the 19th & 20th Centuries” opening February 6th, 2021

Saturday, February 6, 2021

Quilts tell colorful stories that are deeper than the wadding, deeper than the pile of covers layered on a cold winter night. Not so long ago, quilts were considered among the most elaborate and treasured possessions in the typical American home. The exhibition, “Great Cover Ups: Quilts of the 19th & 20th Centuries,” is on view at the Muscatine Art Center from February 6th through April 4th. “The quilts in this exhibition are all part of the Muscatine Art Center’s permanent collection,” explains Melanie Alexander, Director. “The exhibition features about 30 different quilts and most have a Muscatine history connection.”
