    Quilted Conversations: Materializing Civil and Human Rights
    Entry Hall & Heritage Gallery
    January 16 – July 9, 2017 
     
    Quilted Conversations: Materializing Civil and Human Rights grew out of a collaborative community engagement project that uses quiltmaking as a platform to raise awareness about civil and human rights issues. Through community created quilt blocks and quilts from the MSU Museum’s collection, Quilted Conversations demonstrates how creativity can foster community building, civic dialogue, and ultimately civic engagement. It connects contemporary community efforts with Martin Luther King’s work with communities.
