The quilt exhibition "Perfecting the Past: The Colonial Revival and Quilts" will be on view through Sept. 1 at the Robert Hillestad Textiles Gallery. Quilts from the collection of the International Quilt Study Center are on display to show how the Colonial Revival movement (1880-1930) affected pattern, color, and style choices in the 19th and 20th centuries.
The Robert Hillestad Gallery is located on the second floor of the Home Economics Building. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays from June 3 through Aug. 26.
A related lecture by Virginia Gunn of the University of Akron will be open to the public at 4 p.m. June 22 in Room 11 of the Home Economics building.
