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, “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.
