    Name: California Art Quilt Revolution: From the Summer of Love to the New Millennium
    Date: February 22, 2017
    Time: 4:15 PM - 6:15 PM PST
    Event Description:
    We will learn about social and cultural developments that resulted in the rise of quilts as an accepted art medium and the pioneering artists who embraced the art form. In addition, we will explore the personal motivations that played a significant role in an individual’s choice to combine art practice with quilt making. Lastly, we will see how the medium has developed since the 1970s and what today’s quilt artists are addressing. This lecture is based in part on an exhibition curated by the speaker at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles (October 7, 2016–January 15, 2017). Nancy Bavor is Curator of Collections and Exhibits Coordinator at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles. Nancy serves on the boards of Studio Art Quilt Associates and The Alliance for American Quilts and is an American Quilter's Society Certified Appraiser.
