Freedom: Emancipation Quilted and Stitched
Warm, cozy--and able to tell a story. We talk with artist and Baltimore native, Joan Gaither, who uses quilts to preserve and document American history. Her quilts are covered with beads, buttons, photos and fabrics of all colors. Now her quilts are on display at the Reginald F Lewis Museum in an exhibit called, “Freedom: Emancipation Quilted & Stitched”. Gaither describes putting her heart, soul, and identity into her quilts: It’s On the Record, after the news.
