Patience to Raise the Sun


This exhibition catalog which accompanied the touring exhibition organized by the Bennington Museum features beautiful full-color reproductions of the quilts, and tells the story of PeaceQuilts and the women that the organization helps in Haiti.  Writer Nora Nevin provides a fascinating account of how the PeaceQuilts project began and developed, and a glimpse into the rich culture of Haiti and the lives of these talented women artists.  Lavishly illustrated with photographs by Harvey John Beth and a superb essay by Curator of Collections Jamie Franklin provide insights and context for the new category of the Haitian folk art quilt.    60 pages.  Softcover.
