The Quilt Museum is hosting one of their “Sundays at the Museum” programs this afternoon at 2.  Shelly Zegart, a known expert on antique and contemporary quilts, captured the essence of quilting in a nine-part television series titled Why Quilts Matter: History, Art & Politics. The series examines the history of the American quilt and community from early times through current placement in the art world.

Whether you consider yourself a traditional quilter, an art quilter, or anything in between, Why Quilts Matter will make you proud of being a quilter period. In her presentation, Shelly will focus on the scoop behind the making of the series, the importance of quilt history, her first-person understanding of Gee’s Bend quilts, and the issues that surround them.  The cost is $30 for museum members and $40 for non-members.
