The other day Vivien and I had the opportunity to go to the opening reception for the Quilts: Masterworks from the American Folk Art Museum Part II. For me these venerable old beauties are all about the details and texture. Oh how badly I wanted to touch them! No worries, I didn't... But here are some pictures to just try and show you all the visual excitement I experienced. Sadly the museum building has been sold to MOMA and the future is uncertain... If you are close by, I highly recommend seeing the exhibit.
