In addition to the collection database, they have archives of past exhibits including quilts.
1960 Quilts and Coverlets Be prepared to flinch a little when you see the quilts roped up by their corners. Always nice to see quilts photographed in black and white - very graphic.
1984 Curators Choice Includes color and B&W photography of the quilts. I also enjoyed seeing pictures of people as they viewed the exhibit. You will see quilts from the collection photographs in the gallery setting.
I'm thinking a trip to New York might be in the 2013 travel plans!
Could you pick a favorite?? I couldn't!
