Join us in welcoming Dr. Joan Gaither for her gallery talk titled "I Am: A Shared American Story." Gaither is a documentary story quilter from the Baltimore, Maryland area. She is a retired professor who started teaching at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in 1996. Gaither created her first hand-stitched, narrative quilt in 2000 titled “My Story: A Family Quilt” which included multiple layers, materials, and textures. She has made 172 quilts since then. Don't miss this opportunity to hear more about Gaither's process and see several examples of her work! The event will take place in Booth Ferris North, Steinman College Center and the museum will be open extended hours from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.
