Lucy Mingo, "Pieced Quilt" [detail] c. 1979, Gee's Bend, Alabama

Free to attend
Join the Halsey Institute of Contemporary Art at the College of Charleston for a screening of the 2002 film "The Quilts of Gee's Bend" and Q&A with one of the filmmakers, Matt Arnett. This documentary helps brings to light the brilliant, bold, and dynamic quilts created by a group of women who live in the isolated, African American hamlet of Gee's Bend, Alabama. These women have been producing quilt masterpieces for over a century. The quilts are from the William Arnett Collection of the Tinwood Alliance.
