Lunch & Learn: Using Quilts to Interpreting Tennessee's African American Quilts
Please note, this event has expired.
Tiffany Momon, a Research Professor at the MTSU Center for Historic Preservation, will give a presentation on interpreting Tennessee’s African American quilts.
In conjunction with the exhibition, Between the Layers: Art and Story in Tennessee Quilts, Tiffany Momon, will give a presentation on the artist behind the creation of a double wedding ring quilt on view in the exhibit. The quilt was created by Harriet Meneese Falls, a formerly enslaved African American woman living in Robertson County, Tennessee, who worked as a nanny when she created the quilt for Maxine Elliot, a child in her care. This presentation will delve deeper into Harriet’s life, revealing the story between the layers of her work of art.
