Quilts are visual documents of our country’s history; they can be made to celebrate an important event or record a tragedy. Andrews, Director Amerita of the Birmingham Museum of Art will explore the ways quilt-makers have expressed their feelings about country, politics, political loyalties, war and various social movements.
