Coming Exhibition Explores Race Issues In America Through Quilting And Performances
Few artforms can lay claim to the power that quilting possesses. Seemingly mundane objects, quilts are both deeply personal -- with us in our most vulnerable moments as we sleep -- and woven tightly into America's history.
That duality makes them a perfect vehicle for examining America's painful history with race, and a new exhibition coming to Cincinnati in July called Story Quilts aims to do just that. Organizers hope the exhibition and related art, music and dance events can spur conversations that can lead to meaningful and lasting change.
Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
