The Denver Metro Modern Quilt Guild Presents
"How Modern Is Modern?"
Open from October 23, 2017—January 23, 2018
Opening Reception—Friday, October 27th, 6:00–8:00pm
The Denver Metro Modern Quilt Guild hosted a call for entries in early 2017 for their featured modern art exhibit, "How Modern is Modern?"
Their goal was to tell a story about how modern quilting has emerged out of quilting’s long history. By engaging with traditional quilts in a
modern way and linking them to modern aesthetics, it creates a point of connection and dialog between traditional and modern quilts.
The DMMQG chose 3-4 antique quilts in RMQM's Permanent Collection all made prior to WWII and from personal collections as inspiration
to hang along the original quilts in the show. These Inspiration Quilts can be viewed here.
