Beyond Gee’s Bend: A Community Quilting Workshop

New Orleans Museum of Art
Getting there
1 Collins Diboll Circle, New Orleans, LA

Join New Orleans community quiltmakers for a hand-quilting workshop inspired by The Quilts of Gee’s Bend exhibition. The program will include demonstrations and talks by textile artists and a music performance. Tulane Law School’s Dr. Elizabeth Townsend Gard will speak on copyright issues, her provenance workbook project, and her popular community podcast Just Wanna Quilt. Just Wanna Quilt started as a research project at Tulane Law School. It is now a wide community of quilters learning about their art, copyright, and other intellectual property issues. The popular podcast includes interviews with more than 300 quilt-related people—makers, scholars, historians, inventors, and lawyers. Advance registration requested: $35 members | $40 nonmembers (includes lunch) For additional information, contact the NOMA Education department at education@noma.org or 504.658.4128.
