Gee's Bend quilt show

I'm not going to write an actual review so much as a word of advice: go to the Missouri History Museum. Seriously, if you haven't yet seen Mary Lee Bendolph, Gee's Bend Quilts, and Beyond, you have missed out on a truly wonderful exhibition. I am very glad that I managed to finally make it out today to see it (especially since I had thought the show ran longer and it ends this weekend). I can't even begin to describe what an amazing show this is, you really just have to see it for yourself.

The exhibition closes on September 13 so this weekend may be your last chance to see it. And artist Lonnie Holley and curator Matt Arnett will be at the Missouri History Museum from Thursday, Sept. 10 - Sunday, Sept. 13. There will be documentary screenings, book signings and a quilting workshop over the weekend. So even if you have been, it's likely worth returning this weekend to see the show one last time and to meet Lonnie Holley & Matt Arnett.
