JONATHAN GREGORY - INTERNATIONAL QUILT
You can do a lot in twenty years. The case of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum
Just over 20-years-old, the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska, houses the largest publicly-owned collection of quilts in the world, dating from the early 1700s to the present and representing more than 50 countries. Jonathan Gregory, assistant curator of exhibitions, will describe the IQSCM’s founding and significant growth, treasures of its collections, its many resources available to quiltmakers and enthusiasts around the world, and the recent and important exhibitions produced by the museum, including Uncovered: The Ken Burns Collection.
