      New Views: Shapeshifters

      Shapeshifters inaugurates the “New Views” series in which quilts collected over the last 20 years will be exhibited at the museum for the first time. Made between 1830 and 1930, the cotton and wool quilts in Shapeshifters rely primarily on appliqué for their lively effects. Different approaches to drawing and layering demonstrate inventive uses of form and fabric, the animation of negative space, the deployment of various types of symmetry (translation, reflection, rotation, etc.), and ultimately, the features that make a particular design or quilt “original” instead of conventional. Examples include quilts made from wool as well as cotton, embroidered pieces, and several quilts with unusual and delightful depictions of the animal kingdom.

      Cost: $8 Adults, $6 Seniors (age 65+), $4 Child (age 5-18), Free for Child (under 5) and UNL faculty, staff and students
