This exhibition will use over thirty outstanding quilts to explore the visual arc of American quilting from the 1830s through the 1940s. Kentucky-made quilts, the core of the Bingham-Miller Family Collection, will receive special attention. Kentucky highlights range from a vibrant, star-patterned quilt in red and blue made in 1832 by Hannah Huxley of Covington to a 1940s example inspired by Native American blankets from the Southwest. Quilts from Kentucky and Beyond:The Bingham-Miller Family Collection presents outstanding quilts from surrounding states, including a circa 1859 album quilt from Illinois in which various quilters contributed boldly patterned squares of flowers and foliage. The distinctive quilting traditions of Pennsylvania and Ohio’s Amish and Mennonite communities will add another aesthetic and cultural dimension to this extraordinary exhibition.
