19 Stars: Quilts of Indiana's Present & Past
In anticipation of the State of Indiana's Bicentennial Celebration in 2016, the Indiana State Museum will present 19 historic star-patterned quilts, selected from the museum's collection along with 19 contemporary star-themed quilts created by some of Indiana's outstanding quilt artists. Stars were favored patterns in the 19th and 20th centuries and appear in many variations. The historic quilts in this exhibition span 150 years of Indiana quilt making (1830s to the 1980s). In contrast, most of the contemporary works were created specifically for this exhibit, and may incorporate the star theme in any number of ways, from overt to illusory.
