The Gadsden Arts Center & Museum is excited to coordinate the Big Bend Quilt Trail Project.
A public art installation of large wooden quilt blocks placed around the community. In conjunction with the promotion of the Gadsden Community Quilt Trail, the Museum will host From the Cedar Chest: Generations of Southern Quilting, an exhibition of quilts borrowed from private and public collections in the North Florida area. Curated from multiple generations, the exhibition will be on display at the Museum September 14-December 14. 2019. It will include antique to modern quilts, and will discuss the practical function of quilting, the social value, the preservation family history through fabrics, and the art of traditional symbols and designs. Havana Main Street is also developing an annual quilt exhibition along with the Quilt Trail.
