‘Form, Not Function: Quilt Art At The Carnegie’

If you prefer your quilts on the wall and not on the bed, then this exhibition is for you. In the 17th annual “Form, Not Function,” the Carnegie continues its quest to feature the best examples of contemporary art quilts in the United States. Out of 358 works submitted, the jurors (Valerie Goodwin, Dan Olfe and Louisville’s Denise Mucci Furnish) selected 23 for display. The reception (in-house — yay! — with visitors still needing to wear masks and social distance) is Friday, May 14 from 6-8 p.m. There will be music by the Jamey Aebersold Jazz Quartet, wine and appetizers.

Friday, May 14-July 17

Carnegie Center for Art & History
