Quilts that Celebrate Nature from RMQM’s Permanent Collection
Join us for Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum’s exhibition that celebrates nature. We have compiled a group of historic and contemporary quilts from our permanent collection all relating to the exhibit’s theme Nature, Flora, Fauna, Earth. Antique quilts were selected from the Sharee and Murray Newman collection, art quilts were chosen from the RMQM Rooted in Tradition collection. Others that fit the theme were chosen from the permanent collection, at large. These include the Freedom Quilt from Japan commemorating and honoring the victims and families affected by the tragedy of 9/11. Its message and beautiful floral artistry are breathtaking. We are pleased to include Rebirth, a contemporary art quilt by Scott Murkin of Asheboro, North Carolina. This quilt reminds us of the devastation of the Hayman Fire in 2002.Northeast Gallery:
