Langston Hughes Quilt at Booth Museum

My art quilt, Langston Hughes: Pioneer Poet now exhibiting at the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, Georgia (outside of Atlanta, GA) as part of the WCQN show Black Pioneers: Legacy in the American West

The show opened on January 28, 2023 and runs through May 21, 2023, and curated by Women of Color Quilting Network (WCQN) founder Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi. I was not able to attend the show opening due to my broken ankle and subsequent surgery. (I did attend the show’s first opening at The James Museum of Western & Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg, FL in January 2022 – Black Pioneers: Legacy in the American West show opening weekend, Part I )

On the Booth Museum’s website they have a 3D Tour of the exhibit:

Here are some screenshots which include my quilt:

I appreciated being able to virtually see the show/exhibit since I could not attend the show opening.

This is the second venue for this exhibit/show, there are two more venues to go:

  2. I’m curious Tierney, do you ever worry about your quilts staying at the shows for so long? All that work would make me nervous, however, if you and others didn’t do it we would never get to enjoy their beauty!
