Publisher Comments:

This major book and museum exhibition will travel to seven American museums through 2008. Organized jointly by the Tinwood Alliance and the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston, Texas, in conjunction with the Gee's Bend Foundation, the exhibition will present 70 quilt masterpieces from the Alabama town.

Synopsis:

In 2002, Gees Bend burst into international prominence through the success of Tinwoods Quilts of Gees Bend exhibition and book, which revealed an important and previously invisible art tradition from the African American South. Critics and popular audiences alike marveled at these quilts that combined the best of contemporary design with a deeply rooted ethnic heritage and compelling human stories about the women. Gee's Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt is a major book and museum exhibition that will premiere at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH), in June 2006 before traveling to seven American museums through 2008. The book's 330 color illustrations and insightful text bring home the exciting experience to readers while displaying all the cultural heritage and craftsmanship that have gone into these remarkable quilts.
