Community Quilt Project
Made by the Community
The Minnesota African American Heritage Museum and Gallery (MAAHMG) presents the “Community Quilt Project” exhibit which features 14 quilts that express themes of Black history, Black joy, love, family, racial justice, civil rights, Black liberation, gun violence & healing, and Juneteenth – freedom. There is also a quilt honoring Prince that was created during the painting of the Prince mural. The exhibit runs January 10 through July 1, 2023. The quilts, which span over five feet in both height and width, are made from numerous 12 x 12 inch fabric squares that were designed and decorated by individual community members who attended the 10 public quilting events hosted by MAAHMG from May through September 2022. The MAAHMG Community Quilt Project is funded by a Creative Support for Organizations Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board.
