"Quilts and Human Rights" Exhibit

“Quilts and Human Rights” is now open at the Pick Museum of Anthropology in Cole Hall through May 11, 2018. 

This powerful and thought provoking exhibition includes over 40 quilts centered around themes of social justice honoring champions of human rights, documenting quiltmaking as a means of coping with oppression, and examining how quilts raise awareness of global social issues. The Pick Museum staff has expanded the exhibit by adding fifteen more quilts made between 2008 and today highlighting the last decade’s booming modern quilting movement.

This exhibit is free and open to everyone! For more information, please call 815-753-2011. To book a free guided tour, complete the museum's tour reservation form
