Quilts: Light the World

Light is our primary tool for perceiving and understanding the world around us. Without light there is no vision. Light allows us to appreciate the world through shape and form and evokes emotions. Common qualities of light are intensity, quality, color, direction, distribution, texture and movement. Artists were encouraged to explore how light creates and transforms their art. Using the medium of the quilts, visitors will explore the connection between art, light, color, chemistry, geometry and textiles with numerous hands-on science stations. The exhibition was created by Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc.
