Inspiring Social Change
On Display in the Classroom Gallery through May 3, 2015
The New England Quilt Museum is honored to host this joint exhibition from The Advocacy Project and Quilt for Change, two organizations that use the art of quilting to empower women and provide marginalized communities around the world with a means of expression. Their partnership has brought advocacy quilting to the international stage with exhibitions at the United Nations in Switzerland and New York and at museums and universities across the United States. These quilts move beyond compassion to call for global action to advance the rights of women and the disenfranchised everywhere.

ATTENTION ALL SUPPORTING QUILT GUILDS
The Summer Celebration of New England Quilts will feature a gallery exhibition of exceptional quilts made by the Museum’s Supporting Guilds. All Supporting Guilds are invited to submit one quilt, selected by their membership, for inclusion in this special exhibition. Entries must exemplify excellence in design, construction, and finishing. The quilts will not be judged, but a Viewers’ Choice Award will be presented. The winning guild will be invited to display its members’ quilts in the Classroom Gallery of the New England Quilt Museum in 2016. To participate, please download entry instructions and form.
NEQM is funded in part by a grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
