Commonly seen as privately owned vernacular objects, American quilts and coverlets reveal complex collective, often untold, narratives. Join the curator of the MFA’s upcoming exhibition, "Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories," for this workshop inviting educators teaching across disciplines to peer beneath the cover and examine quilts through the interpretive frames of gender, national identity, and cultural practice.
