As a member of the MFA, you’ve shown a passion for art and culture. Member Inside Stories have been created just for you with a fascinating look at the artworks themselves, along with the kind of context that helps you appreciate their power.

Take a look at the first exhibition of this series, “Fabric of a Nation: American Quilt Stories.” Quilts and coverlets have a unique capacity to tell stories: their tactile, intricate mode of creation and their traditional use in the home impart deeply personal narratives of their creators, and the many histories they express reveal a complex record of America. The exhibition invites visitors to celebrate the artistry and intricacy of quilts and coverlets and the lives they document, while also considering the complicated legacies ingrained in the fabric of American life.

This event will be hosted on Zoom. Attendees will receive the link to join prior to the event.
