The quilt exhibition "Wild by Design" will be on view at the Museum of Nebraska Art in Kearney through July 30.
Twenty-five dynamic quilts from the collection of UNL's International Quilt Study Center form an exhibition that explores innovation, abstraction and figurative design by quilt makers from the early 1800s to the present day.
This exhibition highlights the aesthetic dimensions of the unique quilts considered to be "crazy." For at least 200 years, American artists have made quilts in which off-beat color placement and manipulation of printed textile patterns have combined with bold experimentation in block formation and applique.
The Museum of Nebraska Art, 2401 Central Ave., Kearney, is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 1 to 5 p.m. Sundays. It is closed Mondays and major holidays.
