Family Art Project: Freedom Quilting Bee



10:00 To 13:00

Wave Hill Public Gardens, West 249th Street, Bronx, NY, United States

Event Description

In 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., visited the Gee’s Bend Community in rural Alabama and the Freedom Quilting Bee was established. These now-famous quilts would later go on to fund aspects of the community’s freedom. Create your own brilliant, improvisational compositions out of bountiful squares of donated fabric, just for the joy of it and to honor Dr. King’s birthday and the inspiring women quilters of Gee’s Bend.

Sat: Free, and admission to the grounds is free until noon
Sun: Free with admission
