The exhibit was a fabulous experience so I was thrilled to read a recent article in Preservation magazine, "A Salute To Armories" - with a feature section on the Park Avenue Armory.
For those of who toured the Drill Hall Interior Rooms and saw some of the restoration in progress it is interesting to see some of the completed work. The site also has an Interiors Guide to download.

The Park Avenue Armory has been an amazing venue - look at these events. Many beautiful pictures.
It is a wonderful thing to have the rooms restored to their "historic essence while fulfilling contemporary needs"
|Is it gathering with other quilters and quilts?
What does this have to do with quilts?
I was thinking of the quilt exhibits I have most enjoyed and why.
Is it the people? the quilts? the setting?
A combination of the total experience?
The setting is an added bonus for me when it includes a historic building.
Museums also offer interesting settings.
Do you have a favorite local exhibit or venue?
