Anniversary Exhibit at San Jose Quilt Museum

Anniversary Exhibit at San Jose Quilt Museum

By Janelle Cahoon, Quiltcentric

The San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles is celebrating its 35th anniversary with a new exhibition entitled Collecting Treasures:  Celebrating 25 Years, showcasing the diversity of works in the Museum’s permanent collection.

The displayed works include a wide variety of historic and contemporary quilts, plus textiles and clothing from around the world that feature appliqué, quilting, embroidery or other embellishments.

Deborah Corsini, the Museum’s curator, has written a very interesting article in the Museum’s fall newsletter  that describes the process of selecting items for display from among the 850 works in the Museum’s permanent collection.  She also eloquently describes some of the highlights of the exhibition.  The article is well worth your time to read, even if you won’t be able to visit the Museum for this exhibition.
