Enjoy a rare opportunity to see 14 American quilts from Mia’s collection, dating from the mid-1800s to the mid-1900s. See appliquéd, pieced, and embroidered quilts in a dramatic, ceiling-suspended display in Mia’s grand Regis Fountain Court. Highlights include a Baltimore album quilt, bold and graphic Amish quilts, and a historic quilt top made with souvenir squares from the 1901 Pan American Expo at Buffalo, New York. Some of these intricately crafted textiles have never been displayed before. Makers and admirers of quilts, this exhibition is for you.
