African-American Quilts at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum – June 2016
I was walking around downtown on a sunny, cool, late June afternoon and saw this. I was taken by the abstract use of the squares in such a colorful way. The bricks, especially with the length of the wall, seemed a perfect background for the poster, and the side walk enhances the horizontal-vertical theme. The street signs are painted black which I thought was great because they did not distract from the message about the exhibit.
Twelve quilts produced after 1875 are being exhibited at the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Folk Art Museum, part of the Art Museums of Colonial Williamsburg, in the Foster and Muriel McCarl Gallery through May, 2018.
