Freedom: Emancipation Quilted & Stitched

Freedom: Emancipation Quilted & Stitched is an exhibition of documentary-style story quilts that celebrate the contributions, lives, and legacies of people of color in Maryland. The quilts are creations by fabric artist Joan M.E. Gaither, Ph.D. and include several works that consist of community collaborations facilitated by Gaither. The quilts featured in the exhibit are presented as collective stories connected to a continuing struggle for freedom in our shared greater American story. The work speaks to a place in many communities - telling one’s own story, telling the stories of others, and finally, helping others to find and tell their own stories within the context of one collective story.
