Infinite Variety: Three Centuries of Red and White Quilts

Special satellite exhibition of 650 quilts at the Park Avenue Armory, March 25–30, 2011.


The American Folk Art Museum dramatically transformed the Park Avenue Armory’s historic 55,000-square-foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall with the installation of 650 red and white American quilts, all of which are on loan from the collection of Joanna S. Rose. It was the largest exhibition of quilts ever held in New York City. This magical but ephemeral moment will ultimately be captured in the pages of a fully illustrated catalog copublished by the American Folk Art Museum and written by Elizabeth V. Warren, guest curator of this spectacular presentation.
