Quilt Art: Examining the Narrative in Kentucky Quilts, presented by Dr. Pearlie Johnson, Professor of Pan-African Studies & Art History. As a result of oral history interviews with quilters across Kentucky, Dr. Johnson has gathered a small, yet powerful group of quilters whose work she discusses in her presentation.
Her work explores women's history, storytelling, identity politics and empowerment. Since the onset of Dr. Johnson's study of quilts in Kentucky, this presentation includes quilts made by women of all cultural groups.
This even is co-sponsored by The Kentucky Humanities Council & The Friends of The McCracken County Public Library.
All programs are free and open to the public.
