Open Call for Quilts

Texas Folklife is seeking quilts for an exhibit
Stories preserve events and pass on understanding from one generation to another, keeping cultures alive and providing a link to understanding who we are. Quilts often have stories to tell too.
Texas Folklife is seeking quilts that have a story to tell for an exhibit at our Houston Street gallery this spring. We will exhibit 12-15 quilts for 3 months.
