“A Gee’s Bend Quilt” Homeschool Program
February 27 @ 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM$5
The North Alabama Agriplex will host quilters Mary Ann Pettway and China Pettway, whose ancestors’ practically-produced, handcrafted works of art in an isolated corner of rural Alabama grew into a phenomenon when the international art world turned its gaze toward their work near the turn of the century.
The Pettways will host a pair of lectures on the famous quilts, which the Gee’s Bend Collective, managed by Mary Ann, still produces today.
This event will introduce the quilts to local children. There is a $5 per-family fee for the Heritage Homeschool program (registration is required).
