From Heart to Hand
This exhibition includes select quilts from both groups and features the work of Yvonne Wells and Nora Ezell, whose quilts showcase the variety of styles in the MMFA’s permanent collection. The exhibition is divided into three thematic areas, each of which help to introduce traditional patterns of pieced quilts, expand on the improvisations distinct to each quilt artist or region, and to focus on examples from the work of one contemporary Alabama quilter respectively.

In Time We Shall Know Ourselves
In the summer of 1974, a young man drove an aging Volkswagen from New England through the South and into the Midwest, camping and photographing people and places along the way to California. The car died in Kansas City, and Ray Smith took the train home to New Haven, Connecticut, where he printed some of the 750 exposures he had made with his Rolleiflex and Minolta twin-lens cameras. Few of these rare prints have been exhibited or published until now, the fortieth anniversary of Smith’s trip. Click here for more information about this exhibition.
