Celebrate the rich tapestry of African American culture throughout February in a new display in the UGL atrium called "Stitching Stories: A Journey through Black Quilting Artistry." The exhibit focuses on the vibrant world of quilt- ing by Black women, a craft that goes beyond textile to weave tales of creativity, resilience and cultural signifi- cance.

This exhibition showcases images of quilts and honors the legacy of Black quilters who have contributed to the cultural mosaic. Each image is an application of fabric and stitch, displayed to commemorate Black quilting artists and remind us of our theme for Black History Month– African Americans and the Arts. Each quilt tells a story, each stitch embodies a legacy – a living testament to the enduring cul- tural impact of Black quilting artists. Stop by the UGL any- time throughout the month of February to see the exhibit and learn more.
