Highlights from the International Quilt Study Center’s remarkable collection of quilts illustrate the evolution of an art form in this online and on-site interactive timeline.
The history of quilts and the artists who helped shape it are revealed as visitors navigate through this comprehensive interactive, developed both as a Web site and as an installation in the Digital Gallery of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. Visitors can flow through the experience chronologically, or by selecting themes that leapfrog through time. Tied to the Collection Explorer database, many items featured in the timeline link to related examples in the collection.
