EVOLUTIONS 2019 called on all quilters and fiber artists to submit works in celebration of yesterday’s traditions as well as tomorrow’s innovations. Evolution can be defined as growth—a process of continuous change, from lower to higher or from simpler to more complex. Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum challenged these quilters to create their concept of an evolution quilt. There were no design restrictions and these quilters brought their best works! This will be a creative and diverse show not to be missed.
–The Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum was incorporated as a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization in 1982; RMQM opened in 1990 in downtown Golden, Colorado, with a gift of 101 quilts from the personal collection of Eugenia Mitchell, the Museum’s founder.
–RMQM was the third quilt museum in the United States in 1990 and is now one of eleven dedicated quilt museums in the country.
–RMQM has a global reach welcoming visitors from 6 continents, multiple countries and each of the United States.
–Two galleries hosts 8 exhibits a year—showcasing over 250 quilts, historical and contemporary art quilts from the museum’s collection, as well as quilts by national and regional quilt artists. Exhibitions range from traditional to contemporary, each with a unique style and theme.
