“American Quilts: History and Art” Schweinfurth Art Center, Auburn, New York, October 29, 2016 – January 8, 2017

October 21, 2016

American Quilts: History and Art will be at Schweinfurth Art Center in Auburn, New York, October 29, 2016, through January 8, 2017.

American Quilts: History and Art will feature historical quilts curated by Jonathan Holstein from the collection of the International Quilt Studies Center & Museum in Nebraska.

Jonathan Holstein and his wife Gail van der Hoof began  collecting quilts in the late 1960s, and in 1971 curated the seminal exhibition, Abstract Design in American Quilts, at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.  Their collection went to the International Quilt Study Center and Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska.  Their exhibitions here and abroad, along with their writing and lecturing, furthered both the appreciation of American quilts as significant designed objects, and encouraged the now-international art quilt movement.
