History Sandwiched In: Civil War Quilts and Stories


Quilts have changed in purpose and style over the generations. Some quilters make quilts for the main purpose of making art. These artists choose to use fabric as their medium instead of using paint, wood, metal or paper. Another purpose for quilts is to honor and remember. Whether big or small, quilts can make an impact in the lives of people. Join quilter Pat Ehrenberg as she shares her knowledge of the stories of quilts during the Civil War.

The museum will present this program in conjunction with the Dane County Regional Airport exhibition, "Wisconsin Folks: Masters of Tradition," organized by the University of Wisconsin-Madison's Tandem Press and the Wisconsin Arts Board. The exhibit, which runs through March 2013, highlights the Arts Board's Folk and Traditional Arts Apprenticeship Program.
