      Museum Lecture: Candidates and Celebrities in 19th century Quilts

      12:00-1:00

      Free admission

      Nineteenth century quilts often reflect women’s interests in popular culture, literature, and even politics (despite not yet having the vote!).  Find out how these topics show up in American quilts of the 19th and early 20th century based on examples in the current exhibit “A Piece of Her Mind: Culture and Technology in American Quilts.”

      Speaker: Alden O’Brien, Curator of Costume and Textiles, DAR Museum
