    Telling Our Stories: African American Influences on San Antonio's History Quilt Exhibit

    The African American Quilt Circle of San Antonio (AAQCSA) presents a Quilt Exhibit entitled, “Telling Our Story: African American Influences on San Antonio’s History”.

     

    The Exhibition depicts significant time periods and people who have helped shape San Antonio’s history. It showcases events and people of the African American community as far back as the 1800’s. The goal of the exhibit is to create a collection of narrative quilts which shares experiences that influenced San Antonio’s African American Community.

     

    All of the quilts are original designs based on each quilter’s research.  Each quilter used a variety of mixed media techniques to create and embellish their quilts. As the AAQCSA continues its research, it is clear there are more narrative quilts waiting to be created and added to future exhibitions.

     

    Bring your family and friends to experience this one of a kind San Antonio Quilt Exhibit. 

     

    Opening Reception: October 3, 2018 (6-8 p.m.); hear from the quilters and enjoy refreshments. All ages welcomed. 

     

    The exhibit will run until November 9, 2018:

    Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-4 p.m. and two hours prior to each Carver season performance
