Off the Wall: Maverick Quilts

Being independent in thought and action is the hallmark of someone we would label a “maverick,” and is a quality shared by many of the Museum’s Honorees. This new exhibition underscores that very same quality – in quilts. Paired alongside a traditional quilt pattern, these “maverick” quilts display an unusual twist on the ordinary, a verve and a gritty individuality rarely found in more studied and self-conscious quilts. On display will be 30 quilts spanning 100 years, from 1850 to 1950.
