Pieces of the Prairie Exhibition

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Curated by The Triplett Sisters

Pieces of the Prairie explores the early pioneer life on the plains through 19th century quilts from the Poos Collection, one of the largest privately held collections in the world. Mixed in the exhibition are seven modern quilts that are inspired by these traditional quilt patterns, but with a very contemporary look.
