Great Wisconsin Quilt Show hosting virtual exhibit, ‘Racism: In the face of hate we resist’

A special exhibit, “Racism: In the Face of Hate We Resist,” will be presented by Textile Center and Women of Color Quilters Network at the virtual 2021 Great Wisconsin Quilt Show.

This international juried exhibit of 63 quilts shares the stories of resistance and fortitude that have been integral to the survival of Black people in America. In response to the murder of George Floyd, quilters expressed their grief, outrage and hope through stunning textile art.

“Art can speak things that can’t always be said with words,” said exhibit curator Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi.
