The First 10 Years:  Highlights and Favorites from the Museum Collection

The current exhibition of approximately 80 coverlets showcases highlights, favorites and most-requested coverlets that have been added to the Museum collection over the past ten years. Originally numbering 62 textiles, the collection has now grown to approximately 500 and counting.

Appropriately, the exhibition title is The First 10 Years: Highlights and Favorites from the Museum Collection. Exhibition catalogs are still available.


New Exhibition
Flora Borealis:  Idyllic Woven Gardens
Coverlets from the Kitty Bell and Ron Walter Collection

In mid-April (opening date to be announced soon), we expect to put the finishing touches on the next exhibition.

This will be a groundbreaking display, as we focus on the amazing, colorful – and surprising –  variety of trees, flowers, potted plants and vines depicted in woven coverlets. 

The Walters have amassed one of the most important collections in the country, and the coverlets in this exhibition have never before been on display. 

The accompanying catalog, now in production, will show each coverlet in full color.
