A Piece of Her Mind: Culture & Technology in American Quilts – June 18th

A Piece of Her Mind: Culture & Technology in American Quilts
Saturday June 18th
11am – 12pm
Today’s culture makes it easy for American¬†women to engage in the world around them, thanks to advances in both women’s rights and technology. But between 1820 and 1920, many women chose to respond to current events and trends creatively, through one of their prescribed activities: needlework. Quilts allowed women to engage in the world while conforming to their era’s gender roles, which restricted women to the private, domestic sphere.
This exhibition,¬†presented by a docent of the Daughters of the American Revolution Museum, will showcase quilts that reflect their makers’ interest in the world.
