For more information, please see the Call-for-Entries page.

Infinite Ivory and Blue

February 6 – April 26, 2020

Infinite Ivory and Blue presents a major collection exhibition of the museum’s spectacular blue-and-white quilts and textiles from the 1800s to the present day.


April 30 – August 2, 2020

Remnants features the work of contemporary fiber artists who transform the found and physical remnants of everyday life, from fabric scraps to candy wrappers, to reveal portraits of themselves and loved ones as well as slices of time and place. Grounded in the language of textiles, the works in this exhibition recast items that have been overlooked or abandoned into wondrous works of art through the deft manipulation of materials and artistic choice. Ranging in scope from quilts to collage, sculpture to installation, the exhibition brings together artists who make meaning from the textile fragments we encounter daily.
