Alabama Museum Acquires African American Quilts
The Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts just announced it has recently added 10 more modern African-American quilts from West Alabama to its permanent collection. They were acquired through a partial purchase and a generous donation from Kempf Hogan of Birmingham, Mich., bringing the total number of the museum’s African-American quilts to 60.
How wonderful that the MMFA is collecting African American-made quilts. Does your local art museum own African American-made quilts?
