“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.

Details: 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Through Aug. 30. $8-$12. Bullock Texas State History Museum, 1800 Congress Ave. 512-936-8746, thestoryoftexas.com.
