Contemporary Quilters

  • December 1, 2017 - January 8, 2018

Each spring, Minnesota Contemporary Quilters are challenged to make a small quilt that will travel for a year to venues throughout the state.  An inspiration theme is given to the members from which to design a visual interpretation. This fascinating exhibit is a wonderful example of artistic creativity.
