Founded in 1979, Quilt National was intended to demonstrate the transformations taking place in the world of quilting. Its purpose was then, and still is, to carry the definition of quilting far beyond its traditional parameters and to promote quiltmaking as what it always has been — an art form. Celebrating the forty-second anniversary of the premier contemporary quilt biennial exhibition, The Dairy Barn Art Center presents Quilt National '21.
Quilt National '21 features 84 new artworks by artists living in 14 countries and 5 continents. Juried by Nancy Bavor, Brigitte Kopp, and Karen Schulz, selected the artworks that compose the 22nd biennial exhibition.
