The Symmetry of Quilts: Celebrating Art, History, and Math
Cost: $6 per participant; $6 per parent/guardian
Ages: 4-12 years (for activities), but all ages are welcome!
(Siblings younger than 4 years not participating in activities are free)
All families are welcome to join The Booth and Bartow History Museum for a day of hands-on learning. Take a guided tour of the quilt exhibition Black Pioneers: Legacy in the American West, learn about and create tessellations, design a slap bracelet with symbols and patterns, make your very own quilt-square, contribute to our community quilt-making project, at the Booth Western Art Museum!
Then head to the Bartow History Museum to weave a textile on your very own cardboard loom. Plus, learn about the history of chenille and the unique peacock pattern associated with the textile — and get the chance to create your own design and an origami peacock. A scavenger hunt between the museum and prizes for all participants are included.
