Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts
NEW YORK-While "Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts" was only on display for a few days last month at the Park Avenue Armory, the American Folk Art Museum is offering a free smart phone app that is a digital guide to the exhibition, and has images of all 650 quilts that were on display, on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose. The museum said that the exhibition was the largest of quilts ever in the city.
In addition, the museum is inviting exhibition attendees to submit photos of the exhibit through Flickr, using the hashtag #650quilts, by Monday, April 11, for the chance to receive a yearlong membership to the museum and a museum tote bag.
The museum will soon offer an illustrated guide as well to the exhibit, written by Elizabeth V. Warren, guest curator.
