“Dynamic Diversity: Quilts by African-American Artists.”
Museum curator Dr. Sandra Sider tells us that’s the whole point. “Diversity is a catchphrase for multiculturalism. I sort of flipped it: diversity of theme, subject and style.” Houston artist Carolyn Crump, who has been doing a series on juke joint themes, has a nine-foot-tall quilt in the exhibit titled The Butterfly Catcher. It’s a three-for-one summer, with “Art Quilts of the Midwest” (guest curated by Linzee Kull McCray) and “Hearts and Flowers” (19th-century antique quilts) running concurrently.
Noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Continuing 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursdays through Saturdays, noon to 4 p.m. Sundays. June 29 through October 1. 140 West Colorado, La Grange. For information, call 979-968-3104 or visit texasquiltmuseum.org
. $6 to $8.
What do ancient ruins, graffiti and juke joints have in common? They’re all part of the varied subject matter found in the summer exhibit at the Texas Quilt Museum,
