Eiteljorg Museum Extends Quilt Exhibit

When COVID-19 closed museums and cultural venues in March, many had just opened New exhibits that were only seen by a few. For that reason, many museums are extending those shows that would have normally been closed by now.

At the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art, visitors can take in the beauty and history of handmade quilts by women of the west. Each tells a unique story of the seamstress and her community.

WFYI’s Jill Ditmire was masked and distanced when she visited the gallery to learn more about the exhibit from its curator, Johanna Blume.

Quilts: Uncovering Women's Stories will be on display through January of next year.
