Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts

The American Folk Art Museum dramatically transformed the Park Avenue Armory’s historic 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall with the installation of 650 red and white American quilts, all of which are on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose. It is the largest exhibition of quilts ever held in the city. This magical but ephemeral moment will ultimately be captured in the pages of a fully illustrated catalog co-published by the American Folk Art Museum and written by Elizabeth V. Warren, guest curator of this spectacular presentation.
