South Asian Seams exhibition through November 7, 2010
02 Nov 2010
The International Quilt Study Center & Museum invites you to explore South Asian Seams: Quilts from India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh.
The quilts of South Asia are as diverse as the subcontinent itself. From the coastal plains and inland jungles of Bengal (which includes the country of Bangladesh and the Indian state of West Bengal) to the fertile flatlands and hills of Bihar and Maharashtra; from the beaches and jungles of Karnataka to the arid scrublands of Kutch in Gujarat; and from the Sindh in southern Pakistan, which includes the tribal areas of the Thar Desert, to the Indus valley farmlands of Punjab in the north, the quits of South Asia are as varied as its people, who together represent a vast range of ethnicities, cultures, and religions.
The South Asian Seams exhibition ends November 7, 2010.
