Young Artist Workshop: The Quilts of Gee’s Bend
January 19 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm
For ages K5-12
The Quilts of Gee’s Bend
The women of Gee’s Bend — a small, remote, black community in Alabama — have created hundreds of quilt masterpieces dating from the early twentieth century to the present. We’ll examine these and their connection to Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement as we create our own colorful quilt collages.
Location: Creation Station, Heldenfels Studio
