The Bullock Museum is hosting this exhibition of quilts to honor an important milestone: the 150th anniversary of Juneteenth.
“And Still We Rise: Race, Culture and Visual Conversations” features quilted pieces by contemporary artists from the Women of Color Quilters Network — all of which ultimately depict nearly four centuries of African-American history from 1619 through today.
The artists’ distinctive works draw on the enduring American tradition of visual storytelling through the textile art of quilting.
Preview a few quilts from the exhibit in this slide show.
