Mi-Kyoung Lee, Program Director of Craft & Material Studies, University of the Arts
Marsha Moss, Public Art Curator and Consultant

“One of the distinctions of our show is our professional presentation of art quilts. The exhibition has been widely praised by reviewers and artists not only for exhibiting the quilts in a gallery setting but also for promoting the art quilt as an art form.”
