Art Films - The Art of Quilting
Previously identified with an older folk culture of this country, quilts now are creatively made by contemporary artists and hang in galleries. Divided in three segments, this video highlights Quilt National, the premier exhibition of quilts today. Then it focuses on the Chicago School of Fusing and then visits Art Quilts of Philadelphia, a biennial showing. Myriads of techniques are revealed as well as artists at work.
