Material Pulses: Seven Viewpoints, an exhibition focused on the art of quilt-making, presents seventeen works by seven fiber artists representing the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. Curated by internationally renowned artist and teacher Nancy Crow, Material Pulses contributes to the dialogue of contemporary textile arts. Says Crow, “Material Pulses is the culmination of my mission to bring back the majesty, strength, and energy of textile works, particularly large quilts.”

Material Pulses: Seven Viewpoints is organized and toured by ExhibitsUSA, a national program of Mid-America Arts Alliance.  It is sponsored locally by the Mason City Clinic, PC and the David & Phyllis Murphy Charitable Foundation.

In conjunction with the Material Pulses: Seven Viewpoints exhibition there will also be a contemporary quilt making workshop held at the Museum on September 28-29. The September 24 Lunch ‘n’ Learn topic will also be quilt themed.
