National Parks in Quilts

BEATRICE, Neb.- Thirteen beautiful quilts inspired by different National Park Service sites now on display at the Homestead Education Center at the Homestead National Monument of America.

The artists belong to Fiber Works, a group of textile artists from the Lincoln-Omaha, Nebraska area. When they heard about the Centennial of the National Park Service, they wanted to be involved. Each artist created an art quilt inspired by a different National Park Service site. Their National Parks in Quilts exhibit has toured the country and is currently in its final display at Homestead National Monument of America through April 30, 2018.

Coming up on Sunday, the Monument will hold a meet and greet reception with the quilters from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. in Homestead's Education Center. Visitors will have the opportunity to talk with the quilters and learn more about their art and inspiration. Refreshments will be provided by The Friends of Homestead. The reception is free to attend, and everyone is invited to come and learn about the quilts and meet the artists behind them.

In this Pure Nebraska story, Jon Vanderford talks with Cynitha Levis of Fiber Works about the quilt display.
