Quilts: The Artistry of Home

Quilt making is a traditional art form that blends artistry with craft and function. Quilts represent significant hours of labor and often became heirlooms, passed through generations of family. Quilts: The Artistry of Home showcases a selection of quilts from the Michigan State University Collection that were made during the early 20th century, with a focus on the era of the Great Depression.
