Stitched Together

Tue, Jan. 7 - Sat, Oct. 31

Exhibition • AR
Historic Arkansas Museum • 200 E. Third St, Little Rock AR

Quilting is a skill that was carried to the New World by immigrants. However, in the almost two and a half centuries since the colonies became states, quilting evolved into a uniquely American tradition. Most early quilts were not the thrifty creations of hard-strapped settlers, but elegant, complex compositions that commemorated significant life events and were reserved for the family’s best bed.

Arkansas quilts pre-dating 1850 are rare; the majority of surviving 19th century quilts were produced in the last quarter of the century by the hard-working wives and daughters of independent yeoman farmers. Despite the demands of daily life, Arkansas women found time to create some of the most exquisitely crafted quilts in the entire country.

This exhibit tells the story of quilting in Arkansas through a selection of the museum’s most treasured bed covers. On display in Cabe Gallery from through October 2020.

When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776 – 1807

Sat, Aug. 22 '20 - Sun, Mar. 28 '21

Exhibition • PA
Museum of the American Revolution • 101 South Third St, Philadelphia PA 19106

Millions of American women were granted the right to vote with the ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920, which marks its centennial in 2020. But more than a century earlier, women legally voted in New Jersey from 1776 – 1807. In a groundbreaking new exhibition, the Museum of the American Revolution will explore the little-known history of the nation’s first women voters—and examine how and why this right was ripped away in 1807.

Featuring original objects including textiles, manuscripts, furniture, and art, as well as interactive elements and scenic environments, the exhibition will bring to life the forgotten stories of the women who first pioneered the vote. When Women Lost the Vote is an inspiring story that will encourage visitors to reconsider their understanding of the timeline of women’s history in America, but it is also a cautionary tale about one of America’s first voting rights crises.
