Quilts and Human Rights Exhibit

Tuesday, September 5, 2017 - Friday, May 11, 2018

Organized by the Michigan State University Museum, “Quilts and Human Rights” includes over 40 quilts centered around themes of social justice honoring champions of human rights, documenting quiltmaking as a means of coping with oppression, and examining how quilts raise awareness of global social issues. The Pick Museum staff has expanded the exhibit by adding fifteen more quilts made between 2008 and today highlighting the last decade’s booming modern quilting movement.
