From April 13 through May 19, you can see the only Western showingof “Kentucky Quilts 1800–1900.” The 24-quilt exhibit,assembled by the Kentucky Quilt Project and sponsored by the SmithsonianInstitution’s Traveling Exhibition Service, features works chosenby curators who traveled the state to find the best quilts produced inthe 19th century.
