Quilts on Display

Two local venues are showing quilts this spring!

"Amish and English: Quilts from the Illinois State Museum Collection" is on at the Illinois State Museum Lockport Gallery (201 West Tenth Street, Lockport, IL 60441) now until September 16, 2011. The gallery is open Monday-Friday 9 to 5 and Sundays 12 to 5. Note: it is not open Saturdays. Free admission and parking (plus there's a great quilt shop, Thimbles, just a block away.

The second show is at the Lubeznik Center for the Arts in Michigan City (101 W. 2nd St. just north of the outlet mall). The quilt above is by Tommy Fitzsimmons, from her show "Tommy: The Material Girl." It opens April 16th and runs until June 26th.

Also showing at the same time at Lubeznik are two other shows that will be worth seeing: "Woman as Artist, Woman as Muse: Diamond Collection of Posters of the Belle Epoque 1890-1910" and "Vintage Vogue: Cover Art from the LCA Permanent Collection."

Lubeznik is open Tuesday-Friday 10-5 and Saturday and Sunday 11-4. The center is also free with free parking.
